Anderssen Dropjaw Timeless Chess Set- 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.
