The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Ercolano Series Chess set. A full club-sized Chess set, it features a 4.4" King with a 1.85" 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 the Kings featuring English Leather embossed with House of Staunton logo. All other pieces feature luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a beautiful finish.
As with all of our Chess sets, the Ercolano 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.

- Wow, just wow Review by Travis
I went with the ebony over the blood rosewood because I've always loved the look and density of ebony. The beauty is unmatched when compared to my other sets. The knights have always been the first thing I look at in a quality set of chessmen. I joke now that these Ercolano knights are my prize thoroughbreds and the other knights are the donkeys that keep them company in inclement weather. The weight is perfect, heavy and solid, with a great balance in your fingers. Smooth and elegant when polished, they truly add sophistication to whatever room you put them in. I am in no way trying to "sell" you on them, just look at them, they sell themselves. (Posted on 12/26/2018)
