    The Northern Upright Chess Pieces - The Camaratta Collection - 4.5" King

    Product Code: MENWNUR45

    Description


    The House of Staunton is proud to offer the The Northern Upright Chess Pieces Chess Pieces. A full club-sized Chess set, it features a 4.5" King with a 1.5" 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 a beautiful finish.

    As with all of our Chess sets, the Northern Upright 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.

    History of the Chess Pieces

    Reproduction Northern Upright Tournament Chessmen





    A superb recreation of the Northern Upright Chessmen crafted from Boxwood and Ebony, weighted with each of the chessmen resting atop a cushion of fine English baize. The King stands 4.5″ tall with a 1.5″ diameter base. The Boxwood pieces are antiqued and have a very pleasant patina.  The Northern Upright Tournament chessmen,
    often referred to as the Edinburgh (sometimes Edinboro) pattern, fall into the ubiquitous category often referred to as English Playing sets, which also included the Saint George pattern. This design is based on Northern Upright sets produced
    in the workshop of John Calvert, located at 189 Fleet Street during the period the business was overseen by his wife, Dorothy. John Calvert operated his business between 1790 until his death in 1825. He was awarded the title Master of the Worshipful Company of Turners in 1819. After his death, the business was continued by his widow, Dorothy, until sometime in the 1840s. Very few Northern Upright sets were actually produced by the Calverts. Similar sets of chessmen were made by Thomas and William Lund as well as George Merrifield and John Jaques, among others. 



    The Northern Upright chessmen was common throughout the Victorian Period and date to the 1830s.
    The design of the Northern Upright chessmen is often attributed to
    Lord John Hay. Similar sets of chessmen were made by Dixon, Thomas and William Lund, as well as George Merrifield and John Jaques, among others



    These English Playing sets were ultimately supplanted by the Staunton chessmen which were introduced to the public in September of 1849. The antique chessboard and Junghans Chess Timer shown in the images are not included in this offering, but can be purchased at www.ChessAntiques.com.
