Description

The Chessmen

The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Calvert Chess set. It features a 3.5" King is a highly detailed and accurate reproduction of the Circa 1810 English Playing Chess Set design referred to as the Calvert Pattern. It is often, but wrongly, attributed to John Calvert, a Master of the Worshipful Company of Turners, located at 189 Fleet Street, from around 1790 to 1840. He specialized in exquisitely turned Chess sets for the aristocracy and in ebony/boxwood for the many coffee shops and clubs where Chess was a popular pastime.


This reproduction is an exact copy, of an original Calvert Chess set. It dates from around 1810, at which time white and red colored pieces were popular. The slender baluster stems and the unusual form of the King and Queen with their pierced floral crowns, makes an attractive and highly decorative design.

The Chessmen are new and come housed in a Classical Tiroir Display Chessboard that features two drawers with individual compartments for piece storage. The House of Staunton logo is silk screened on the h1 square. The Chessboard has 1.75" Squares and features Walnut (dark) and Maple (light) squares with a Cherry frame. This veneered Classical Tiroir Display Chessboard has an overall size of 17.5" x 17.5" x 4.5" and has a satin finish.
