img

The House of Staunton is proud to offer another masterpiece - The Monza Artisan Series Chessmen. These Chessmen feature a 4.4" King with a 2" Diameter base and are very heavily weighted.

 

Designed by the Maestro, Frank A. Camaratta, Jr., The Monza Series Luxury Chess set is a masterful design that is as beautiful as it is functional. 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 House of Staunton English Leather basepads on the King and luxurious billiard cloth base pads on the other Chess pieces, with a beautiful finish. As with all of our Chess sets, the Monza 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 design of the Monza Series Luxury Chess set is without a doubt, one of the finest chess sets ever produced by the House of Staunton. It offers the highest level of detail and would make a wonderful additional to any Chess collection.

 

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 Monza Series Luxury Chess Set comes with two king's finials (crosses) - the Eastern Teardrop Finial and the Traditional Cross FInial.

 

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.
