Please Contact Us Regarding Availability - We may have the Mammoth Ivory Chess Pieces in Stock!
It is our opinion that the US Federal Government will likely ban the sale of all ivory-based products in the US in the near future, including those made out of Woolly Mammoth Ivory. As a result, this will likely be your LAST chance to own a piece of history.
"Crafted from 40,000-year old Woolly Mammoth Ivory, they capture the exquisite design and proportions of the original Staunton pattern Chess set, registered by Nathaniel Cooke and produced by Jaques of London in 1849."
To pamper you, The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Mammoth Ivory Collector Series Signature Chess set. A full Club-sized Chess set, it features a 4.4" King with a 2.0" diameter base. The Chess pieces are hand carved by our master artisans and crafted out of the finest materials. Because of the natural weight of Mammoth Ivory, the pieces have an excellent feel that does not require any artificial weighting.
All 34 Chess pieces are crafted from Mammoth Ivory. The Black army is crafted from Mammoth Ivory that has been lacquered black to provide the perfect amount of contrast. The Chess pieces are presented au natural, with nothing on the underside of the pieces. This is done intentionally to allow the Chess players the opportunity to appreciate the magnificent grain of the Mammoth Ivory. Included with the purchase of this Chess set is a set of English Leather base pads that can be affixed to the underside of the both armies if so desired.
The Chessmen are new and each set consists of 34 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton in 1993.
The Chess Set comes with a Individually Numbered Certificate of Authenticity and an original manufacturer's label indicating the production number, with an adhesive backing that would allow it to be affixed to the underside of a Chess box.
