    About the Chessmen

    The House of Staunton is proud to offer another masterpiece - Camaratta Signature Series Cooke Luxury Chess Set! Combining the Staunton perfection of the Cooke set with the Maestro's Knight design from the Craftsman set, these Chessmen showcase the Maestro's passion for Greek architecture, as well as the highest standard of the Staunton pattern. 

    The Cooke design is a perfect reproduction of the original Staunton-pattern chessmen, the standard by which every tournament Chess set has been designed.   

    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 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. 


    About the Chess Box

    Each Chess Set comes packed in a House of Staunton Mahogany Premium Chess Box with the Champions Showdown logo laser engraved on the lid.

     

    About the Signed Certificate of Authenticity

    Each Chess Set comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that was hand-signed by the players that used each particular set. For this particular set, the certificate was signed by Levon Aronian and Leinier Dominguez.

    Kingside Stamping

    What is Kingside Stamping?

     

    Kingside stamping was part of the original Staunton Pattern design, consisting of a King's Crown stamped into the Rook  and Knight that started on the right side (or King's Side) of the chessboard.  In Descriptive notation, it is useful for distinguishing between the Kingside and Queen's Side pieces.

    Whether you use them in your chess strategy or for historical decoration, we offer kingside Stamping on some of our chess sets!
