    Product Code: SETWNOV44

    Description

    The Novara Artisan Series Chessmen - Winter 2012.

     

    The Novara is yet another Artisan Collection masterpiece. These Chessmen feature a 4.4" King with a 2.0" 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 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 Novara 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 Novara Series Luxury Chess set is unparalleled in both its original styling and exquisite attention to detail. Mere words can not do this Chess set justice, so we will allow the stunning photographs above to tell you everything you need to know about this Chess set. The Novara Series Luxury Chess set is a true masterpiece 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 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.
