The Bristol Series Timeless Chess Set - 4.5" King

Product Code: MENWBRS45-AEB-C-B

img

The House of Staunton is proud to introduce our newest masterpiece - The Bristol Timeless Series Chessmen. Part of our Timeless Collection, it is a wholly original design from the Maestro himself, Frank A. Camaratta, Jr. These Chessmen feature a 4.5" King with a 1.875" Diameter base and are very heavily weighted.

 

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 and a beautiful finish. While the design of the Bristol Series Chess set draws its inspiration from the Pre-Staunton Pattern Chessmen of the 1820s, it is as functional as any Staunton Pattern set with its heavy weighting, exaggerated bases (for additional stability) and distinctive piece design. With a striking new Knight design, this set is as beautiful as it is functional!

 

 As with all of our Chess sets, the Bristol 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 adhesive backing that would allow it to be affixed to the underside of a Chess box.
