Play like a Champion!

 

Play like a champion with the Championship Chess Set. An exact reproduction of the European Pattern Chessmen, it has been used at every major chess Championship match for the past ten years. The list of tournaments that have used these Chessmen include The US Chess Championship, FIDE Olympiads, Linares, Dortmund, Wijk Aan Zee and many more.

A tournament-sized Chess set featuring a 3.75" King with a 1.4" diameter base. 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 and a beautiful finish.

As with all of our Chess sets, the Championship 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.

Why are they called Gilded?

Gilded, whose definition means "to give an enhanced appearance", is the perfect way to describe these Chess pieces. Our master artisans hand apply a finish to Natural Boxwood Chess pieces to create the striking assortment of wood colors options that you see above. This allows us to offer our Gilded Collection at a very reasonable price, while still delivering the highest aesthetic experience to our customers. Further, because both armies are crafted out of Boxwood, they are extremely durable and highly resistant to developing hair line cracks.
