The Camaratta Signature Pre Staunton Series




Was there life before Staunton (Chessmen)?

What style chessmen did the great players from the Romantic era, like Greco, Von Der Lasa, Falkbeer, Petrov or de Riviere use? What pieces were selected for the famous 1834 McDonnell-La Bourdonnais match?

See the chessboard through Philidor’s eyes or face an opponent over a chessboard arrayed with a set of Selenus chess pieces. Perhaps playing over Andersen’s 1851 Evergreen game against Dufresne, or his 1951 match victory over Kewiseritzky using a set of Calvert chessmen. Maybe you would like to experience Morphy’s victory over Lowenthal through a set of Northern Upright Pieces?

The famous 1843 Staunton-Saint Amani match was played with using a set of French Directoire chessmen. Numerous images and drawings of chess matches show battles arrayed with sets of Austrian Coffeehouse pieces at the Café de la Régence. Experience the rich history of chess vicariously through your own set of Pre-Staunton chessmen. Each of these historically accurate pieces has been thoroughly researched and reproduced. They are now part of the Frank Camaratta Signature Pre-Staunton Series chessmen.

    The Calvert Bone Luxury Chess Pieces - 3.25" King
    Catalog Code: MENBCAL325

    This beautifully rich combination of chessmen and display case is a wonderful complement to any collection. This elaborate early 1800s English Playing Chess Set design, referred to in the literature as a Calvert Pattern, is derived from earlier German designs from the 15th through the 19th centuries. It is often, but wrongly, attributed to John Calvert, a Master of the Worshipful Company of Turners, located at 189 Fleet Street, from around 1790 to 1840. He specialized in exquisitely turned Chess sets for the aristocracy and for the many coffee shops and clubs where Chess was a popular pastime.
