Colour Swatches | Custom Board Games

Probably the best hand-carved wooden Staunton chessmen available. When Howard Staunton first developed this famous set with the help of Nathaniel Cooke of the Morning Herald newspaper; but also considering the numerous developments since that time and in particular the requirements of today’s great Champions.

Chessmen With Two Queens

As with all our sets, we provide extra Queens. This is so you always have a proper Queen to join the board if you are able to reach the opposite side with a Pawn. The triple-weighted flared bases of the pieces can be trimmed in traditional green baize, and black felt, but also in natural suede or leather.

Different Sets:

Championship: Ornately carved & offered in three King sizes, these sets take their design from the original drawings back in 1849.

Club: Probably the best hand-carved wooden Staunton set available for those on a budget.

I have to say this is one of the most beautiful boards I’ve ever purchased. The customer service was amazing and the board itself is even better than I could have ever imagined.
