      The Anderssen Dropjaw Timeless Chess Pieces - 2.875'' King

      Product Code: MENWJAW2875


      The House of Staunton is proud to introduce the Anderssen Dropjaw Timeless Series Chessmen. Part of our Timeless Collection, it is exact reproduction of the Circa 1854 Jaques of London Anderssen Dropjaw Pattern Chessmen. These Chessmen feature a 2.875" King with a 1.5" Diameter base and are very heavily weighted. These Chessmen are an exact replica of the original Chessmen, down to the smallest details!

      The Chess pieces are hand carved by our master artisans and crafted out of the highest grade woods. The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with luxurious billiard cloth base pads on the other Chess pieces and a beautiful finish. The design of the Anderssen Dropjaw Pattern captures the form, board presence and craftsmanship of one of the earliest Staunton Patterns from Jaques of London.

      The most striking aspect of the Anderssen Dropjaw Series Chess Set is the beautiful patina on the Boxwood (White) Chessmen. Our artisans have accurately captured the rich, golden color commonly found on well preserved antique Chess sets. As with all of our Chess sets, the Anderssen Dropjaw Series 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 a personalized Certificate of Authenticity and an original manufacturer's plaque indicating the production number, with an adhesivebacking that would allow it to be affixed to the underside of a Chess box.

      Actual Circa 1935 Jaques of London Broadbent Pattern Staunton Chess sets with a 3.0" King historically sell for upwards of $1,500 USD at auction. To put this number in context, please consider the fact that Chess pieces of this age always have some blemishes, such as dirt, cracks, chips, dings, patina discoloration and possibly replacement pieces. Here's your opportunity to purchase an exact reproduction of these legendary Chessmen, in Pristine Condition, for a fraction of the price!




      When you are considering purchasing an item that is made out of wood, it is important to remember that wood is a natural material, and as such, there can be slight variations in its physical characteristics.  Variations in grain pattern and intensity, color, hue and texture can occur - even within the same piece of wood. This is especially true for such exotic woods as Cocobolo, Blood Rosewood, Padauk and Rosewood. We've had many customers ask ”shouldn't all boxwood pieces (or ebony pieces) look exactly the same? The answer to this question is an emphatic no! And the reason is that the physical characteristics of a piece of wood tell the life story of the tree from which it came. There are countless factors, including mineral availability, access to water and sunlight, and physical stresses that influence the physical characteristics of wood. Like a snowflake, no two pieces of wood could ever be the same. We at the House of Staunton believe that it is this natural variation that makes each chess piece a truly unique work of art, adding to its overall attractiveness and character. Each House of Staunton Wooden Chess Set is "one of a kind" and should be appreciated as such. After all, it is the way that nature intended it!

      All House of Staunton-brand Wood Chess Sets come with a one-year limited manufacturer warranty against defects in workmanship. Please CLICK HERE to learn more.
