The House of Staunton is proud to offer the The BCC Imperial Chess Pieces. 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 highest grade woods. The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with a beautiful finish.
As with all of our Chess sets, the BCC Imperial 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 in 1993.
The Chess Set comes with a Individually Numbered 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.
History of the Chess Pieces
This reproduction was executed by Frank Camaratta. An added feature is the weighting of the chessmen. The Rooks are heavier than the Bishops and Knight. Both minor pieces have the same weight. The chessmen housed in a Premium Mahogany divided box, lined in green baize. The reproduction British Chess Company label is mounted under the lid.
