From our Staunton by Design collection, the Gotham offers both collectors and chess set connoisseurs a new and exciting design that will prove a favorite. The Gotham strays from pure Staunton with its unique features and lines that are best described as art deco. The pieces share an elegant profile with beatiful curves and simple shapes. There are no collars adding to the uniqueness of the design, yet the pieces retain a Staunton familiarity. The ebony is pure black and polished to a beautiful glossy shine. The boxwood is beautifully grained and with the ideal medium amber color.

The king is 4.4" tall and has 2 different finials that can be interchanged according to your personal taste. The queen has only 5 points with each point topped with a round finial. The bishop miter is not separated from the body with a collar yet is pronounced in its shape. The knight's retain their Staunton form with features such as the eyes, ears, nose, and mouth rendered and intricately detailed. The rooks are slender but have the traditional crenels cut into the parapet. The pawns have a unique elongated head with a pointed top.

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 Gotham. 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.
