Our Hampshire Staunton chess set is in a class of its own. Purely traditional with an old Jaques personality, players and collectors will love the look, feel, and quality of this ultra-premium chess set! The knight's are extraordinarily elegant combining simplistic beauty with fine detail found only on the very finest chess sets. The king, queen, and bishop have beautiful profiles with a traditional straight base. The rooks are oversize with perfectly cut crenels and even the pawns merit special mention with their oversize collars and head. The ultimate in traditional Staunton design exceeding all others!
This club size chess set with a 4.4" king is one of our two signature sets in the Staunton by Design collection. You will recognize it in the logo. The knights are carved by the most skilled carvers in the world, in fact, the same craftsmen that carve the famous Jaques of London chess sets. Only ten of these sets will be available for sale in 2008.
You may want to consider adding our Deluxe Chess Coffer. This two-tray coffer is extra large and designed specifically for our club size chess sets like the Hampshire. Inside you will find individual compartments to hold each piece and the entire coffer is lined with a beautiful thick green baize to protect the pieces when they are being stored. When you open the lid you will find a beautifully polished gold, laser engraved plaque with our Staunton by Design logo.
