    Description

    The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Lasker Series Chess set from the Camaratta Collection. A full tournament-sized Chess set, it features a 4.0" King with a 1.85" 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 and the Kings feature English leather embossed with the Frank Camaratta logo and the other pieces with billiard cloth base pads and a beautiful finish.

    As with all of our Chess sets, the Lasker 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 in 1993.

    History of the Chess Pieces


    Reproduction Lasker Chessmen, Small Club Size.

    These chessmen are an accurate reproduction the famous Lasker Chessmen which were originally produced between 1880 and 1890 and which were used in many tournaments, both here and in Europe. This redesign was executed by Frank Camaratta and is based on the original antique chessmen from his collection. The chess pieces are Natural Boxwood and Genuine Ebony. The King stands 4-0”″ tall with a 1.85″ diameter base. This is often referred to as the “Small Club Size.” The Kings Feature English Leather Embossed with Frank Camaratta Signature. All Other Pieces Feature Luxurious Green Baize. The White King is stamped “F. Camaratta U.S.A. ” on the rim of the base. The Kingside Rooks and Knights are stamped with a King’s crown on their summits. The set includes an extra pair of Queens to facilitate Pawn Promotion. The chessmen are accompanied by an accurate reproduction of the original green manufacturer’s label as well as a certificate of authenticity.

    Kingside Stamping

    What is Kingside Stamping?

     

    Kingside stamping was part of the original Staunton Pattern design, consisting of a King's Crown stamped into the Rook  and Knight that started on the right side (or King's Side) of the chessboard.  In Descriptive notation, it is useful for distinguishing between the Kingside and Queen's Side pieces.

    Whether you use them in your chess strategy or for historical decoration, we offer kingside Stamping on some of our chess sets!
