Our Liberty Series Chess set is an exact reproduction of one of the most popular American Staunton Pattern chessmen, first introduced in 1941. The original sets were used in most major chess clubs throughout the States for nearly two decades and were the set of choice for major tournaments held in the U.S. during that period. The pieces featured a very robust design with thick collars and no delicate frills to chip or break during hard usage. So confident were the original manufacturers of the indestructibility of their new design that they unconditionally guaranteed each piece for life! With the advent of Blitz and Bughouse, we're not so adventurous, although this is unquestionably the best set of chessmen for blitz play you can buy!
As with all of our Chess sets, the Liberty 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 in 1993.
