About the Tournament

 

 

The 2013 Sinquefield Cup is the first-ever Super GM tournament to be held in Saint Louis, and it will feature four of the best players on the planet including the top two in the world: GM Magnus Carlsen and GM Levon Aronian, and the top two in the United States: GM Hikaru Nakamura and GM Gata Kamsky. It is a double round-robin tournament.

To commemorative this event, the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis partnered with the House of Staunton to create a chess set worthy of the Sinquefield Cup Match. Rex Sinquefield, sponsor of the Sinquefied Cup, was an admirer (and proud owner) of the House of Staunton Imperial Collector Chessmen so it was decided that the Chessmen would be based upon our Imperial Collector pattern. Because the players would be playing on DGT Project Electronic Sensor Boards, it was decided that the Chessmen would need to feature a 3.75" King Height, allowing it to fully adhere to both USCF and FIDE tournament rules. And the Sinquefield Cup Commemorative Chessmen were born!

In cooperation with the Chess Club and Scholastic Chess Center of St. Louis, the House of Staunton is offering the 2013 Sinquefield Cup Commemorative Chessmen. It is a limited edition Chess set, with a total of only 25 units available, with each Chess set coming with hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity that was signed by each of the 4 players. Chess sets will be sold on a first come, first serve basis ; purchase quickly to insure yourself a low production number! 

Here's your chance to own a piece of chess history, featuring four  of the greatest players in the world, including World Champion Candidate and #1 Rated Magnus Carlsen.



 NOTE - These are not DGT-Enabled Chess Sets. They are traditionally weighted Chess Sets.

About the Chessmen

"The Maestro has improved upon perfection by combining our legendary Collector Series Chessmen with the Imperial Knight, without a doubt one of the most finest Knight designs ever produced."

This full-tournament sized Chess set features, crafted out of the highest grade Natural Boxwood and Genuine Ebony, features a 3.75" King with a 1.7" diameter base.

The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with gold embossed English Leather base pads under the Kings that feature the Sinquefield Cup Logo, luxurious billiard cloth base pads on the other Chess pieces and a beautiful finish.

 

The Collector Series Luxury Chess set has been crafted to replicate the design and proportions of the original Staunton pattern Chessmen, registered by Nathaniel Cooke in March of 1849 and first manufactured by Jaques of London in September 1849. The distinctive feature of this set is the the open-mitered Bishop and original Knight design, which was originally sculpted by the Maestro, Frank A. Camaratta, Jr. With it's downturned head, flowing mane and aggressive facial expression. this is one of the finest Knights ever to grace the 64 square battlefield.

 

As with all of our Chessmen, the Imperial Collector Series Luxury Chess set 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 over 10 years ago.

 

The Chess Set comes with an original manufacturer's plaque indicating the production number, with an adhesive backing that would allow it to be affixed to the underside of a Chess box. 


About the Chess Box

Each Chess Set comes packed in a House of Staunton Red Burl Premium Chess Box with the House of Staunton and Sinquefield Cup Logo laser engraved on the lid. In several of the above photographs, you can see the players holding the Red Burl Premium Box .
