    The Strand Series Timeless Chess Pieces - 4.4" King - Natural Boxwood

    Product Code: MENWSTR44-EB-P

    Description

    The House of Staunton is proud to introduce our newest masterpiece - The  Strand Timeless Series Chessmen. Part of our Timeless Collection, it is exact reproduction of one of the most famous Chess sets in the world, the Circa 1820 Grand Cigar Divan Pre-Staunton Pattern Chessmen. These Chessmen feature a 4.4" King with a 1.65" Diameter base and are very heavily weighted. These Chessmen are an exact match to the original Chessmen, down to the smallest details! 

     

    The Chess pieces are hand carved by our master artisans and crafted out of the highest grade woods. The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with luxurious billiard cloth base pads on the other Chess pieces and a beautiful finish. The design of the Strand SeriesChess set embodies the form, board presence and craftsmanship of one of the most celebrated turn-of-the-century designs from Jaques of London. The House of Staunton has recaptured the essence of these magnificent Chessmen and made them available on a very limited basis.
     
    As with all of our Chess sets, theStrand Series exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality. It has been designed to withstand the rigors of practical play while maintaining an elegance which has become the hallmark of a House of Staunton chess set. The design, quality and craftsmanship of this set is UNMATCHED by any set of Chessmen in its price range. Nothing even comes close!
     
    The Chessmen are new and each set consists of 34 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton over 10 years ago.
     
    The Chess Set comes with a Individually Numbered Certificate of Authenticity and an original manufacturer's plaque indicating the production number, with an adhesive backing that would allow it to be affixed to the underside of a Chess box. Each set consists of 34 Chessmen, 17 light and 17 dark (including the two additional Queens.)
     
    FINANCIAL COMPARISON
    There is only one Original Circa 1820 Grand Cigar Divan Chess Set with a 4.4" King in existence in the world and it is on display at the legendary Simpson's-On-The-Strand in London, UK. Here's your opportunity to purchase an exact reproduction of these legendary Chessmen, in Pristine Condition.
