The House of Staunton is proud to offer the 1850 Morphy Series Chess set from the Frank Camaratta Collection. A full club-sized Chess set, it features a 4.4" King with a 1.7" diameter base.

The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with English leather embossed with Frank Camaratta's signature for the King's and the other pieces have luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a beautiful finish. The form, board presence and exquisite craftsmanship of these magnificent chessmen have been recaptured and are offered to you.
As with all of our Chess sets, the 1850 Morphy 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.

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!
