"The Maestro has improved upon perfection by combining our legendary Collector Series Chessmen with the Imperial Knight, without a doubt one of the finest Knight designs ever produced."

 

To pamper you, The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Imperial Collector Series Prestige Chess set. This full-tournament sized chess set 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 gold embossed English Leather base pads under the Kings and luxurious billiard cloth base pads on the other chess pieces. The Collector Series Prestige Chess set has been crafted to replicate the design and proportions of the original Staunton pattern chessmen, registered by Nathaniel Cooke in March of 1849 and first manufactured by Jaques of London in September 1849. The distinctive feature of this set is the the open-mitered Bishop and original Knight design, which was originally sculpted by the Maestro, Frank A. Camaratta, Jr. With it's downturned head, flowing mane and aggressive facial expression, this is one of the finest Knights ever to grace the 64 square battlefield.

The Prestige Collection Chessmen have been crafted out of Genuine Ebony and Blood Rosewood, the two most expensive woods used by the House of Staunton in the manufacturing of Chessmen. Each of the turning squares of Blood Rosewood used to create these Chessmen has been hand selected to provide the perfect amount of contrast with their Genuine Ebony counterparts. The result is a magnificent Chess set that is as beautiful as it is functional.

As with all of our Chessmen, the Imperial Collector Series Prestige Chess set 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 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.
