    About B&Co.


    The origins of B&Co. are shrouded in mystery. To this date, no one has been able to uncover any information on this company. What can be determined, based on the style of the chessmen, type style and the storage boxes produced to house them is that B&Co. started producing Staunton chessmen in the mid to late 1850s. Initially, their sets bore some rudiments of earlier pre-Staunton designs such as alternate-colored bone staffs atop the Kingside Rooks. Around the 1870s, their design matured into the set you now see before you. B&C0 stampings are found on their hardware, such as their hinges. The House of Staunton has reproduced this unique set of chessmen for your playing enjoyment. The chessmen are Boxwood and luxurious East Indian Ebony (Diospyros ebenum). Ebony is among the most expensive of all available lumbers: usually about two to three times more expensive than most species of Rosewood. The small size of the tree, and its high demand for ornamental work contribute to its price. Our chessmen and are an exact reproduction of the famous B&Co chessmen from the 1870s. The Club-size King stands a full 4-1/4” tall with a broad 2-0” diameter base.
