    The Windsor Chess Set, Board, & Box Combination - 3.875" King

    Product Code: SETWWIN375

    Description

    "An exact reproduction of one of the most popular chess sets used in most major US Chess Tournaments during the 1950s and 1960s, including a young Bobby Fischer who won the 1958 US Chess Championship with these popular chessmen."

     

    The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Windsor Series Chess set. A full tournament-sized Chess set, it features a 3.875" King with a 1.6" diameter base. 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. The design of the Windsor Chess set is an exact reproduction of the Chess set used by the legendary American Grandmaster Bobby Fischer when he won the 1958 United States Chess Championship. The Chess set has been designed to withstand years of use (and abuse), as it lacks many of the ornate details commonly found on Chess Sets that can be susceptible to damage in the heat of battle. For example, the Chess set features minimal Rook crenellation and Bishop mitre for unmatched durability. The Windsor Series Chess set is ideal for those that are interested in both the historical importance of the game of Chess, as well as those looking for an attractive Chess set that is both economical and durable.

     

    As with all of our Chess sets, the Windsor Series Chessmen 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.


    ALSO INCLUDES A FREE
