    Description

    Tired of the same boring variations on the Staunton design? Looking for something original a new paradigm perhaps? Then here is a refreshing new approach to brighten your chessic landscape.  Meet the Avant Garde Chessmen from the Camaratta Signature Series. With their graceful, up-swept stems, piece-to-piece design consistency, mold-breaking Knights and a radical new King’s finial, these pieces make a statement like no other set of chessmen can.

    To cater to your creative side, two Knight styles and three interchangeable Kings’ finials are included. One steed is a variation on the more classic Knight, the other is simply a step beyond. Then there are those Kings finials.  Apart from the more traditional Formee cross and Eastern ball finials, here is an entirely new concept, a fountain flowing gracefully into a Maltese cross.

    If you have been searching for  some truly unique chessmen to grace your favorite chess table, you have finally found it!



    To pamper you, The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Avant Garde Series Luxury Chess set. This full-tournament sized Chess set features. A full club-sized Chess set, it features a 4.4" King with a 1.9" diameter base. 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 gold embossed English Leather base pads under the Kings, luxurious billiard cloth base pads on the other Chess pieces. 

    As with all of our Chessmen, the Avant Garde Series Luxury Chess set exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality. It has been designed to withstand the rigours 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 Chess Set comes with an 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.
