This chess set design originates from a model produced by the Worshipful Company of Turners in England back in the late 1700s. John Calvert, a Master at the Worshipful Company of Turners, is generally credited with this design. While not Staunton traditional, this chess set has similar features found on Staunton sets being made by their contemporary, John Jaques and Son, Ltd. This handsome and heavily weighted chess set is both wonderful for a serious chess game and a work of art you will want to proudly display! We recommend a chess board with 2 1/4" squares.
