    The Broadbent Chess Pieces - 3.0" King

    Product Code: MENWBNT30

    Description

    The House of Staunton is proud to introduce our newest masterpiece - The Broadbent Timeless Series Chessmen. Part of our Timeless Collection, it is exact reproduction of the Jaques of London Chessmen Circa 1935 Broadbent Staunton Pattern Chessmen. These Chessmen feature a 3.0" King with a 1.4" Diameter base and are very heavily weighted. These Chessmen are an exact match to the original Chessmen, down to the smallest details!

    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 luxurious billiard cloth base pads on the other Chess pieces and a beautiful finish. The design of the Broadbent Series Chess set embodies the form, board presence and craftsmanship of one of the most celebrated 20th century designs from Jaques of London. The House of Staunton has recaptured the essence of these magnificent Chessmen and made them available on a very limited basis.


    As with all of our Chess sets, the Broadbent Series 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.
