The Library Collection - The Zukertort Series Luxury Chess Pieces - 2.875" King
The House of Staunton is proud to introduce the Zukertort Series Luxury Chessmen. Part of our Library Collection, it is exact reproduction of the Circa 1860 Zukertort Pattern Chessmen. These Chessmen feature a 2.875" King with a 1.35" Diameter base and are very heavily weighted. These Chessmen are an exact replica of 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 Zukertort Pattern captures the form, board presence and craftsmanship of one of the most sought after Patterns from Jaques of London.
As with all of our Chess sets, the Zukertort 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.
