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 Black Premium Chess Box with the Sinquefield Cup name and logo laser engraved on the lid.

 

About the Signed Certificate of Authenticity

Each Chess Set comes with a Reproduction Certificate of Authenticity that was hand-signed by all ten of the participants in the match - Fabiano Caruana, Richard Rapport, Jeffrey Xiong, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Dariusz Swiercz, Wesley So, Peter Svidler, Leinier Dominguez, Sam Shankland and Shakhriyar MamedyarovUpon the completion of the event, we will put up a sample of the Signed 2021 Sinquefield Cup Certificate.

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!
