The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Professional Series Chess set. A full tournament-sized Chess set, it features a 3.75" King with a 1.7" 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 luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a beautiful finish. The design of the Professional Series Chess set has been heavily influenced by the Jaques of London Hartston design from the mid-1890s, a period widely regarded by Chess collectors as having the finest Staunton Chess Sets ever produced. The Chess set features exaggerated broad bases with finely turned details, which are typically found in much more expensive House of Staunton Premium Chess sets. The Professional Series Chess set is ideal for those that are interested in a quality Chess set at a very affordable price.
As with all of our Chess sets, the Professional Series Chessmen 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 over 10 years ago.
Crafted in Spain, the House of Staunton Standard Traditional Walnut / Maple wooden Chessboard (2.25" Squares) features Walnut (dark) and Maple (light) squares with a Walnut frame. This veneered Chessboard is 0.5" thick and has a satin finish.
The Slide Top Chess Box is the most economical way to protect your chess pieces. It comes with a removable green pillow lining that allows it to hold a set of chess pieces of various sizes, from 3.0" to 4.4".

- A perfectly balanced set Review by Josh
The walnut is a lot richer looking in person, with a slightly darker tone than what the pictures show on my screens. It looks even better in person! I got the golden rosewood pieces for black and it looks perfect with the walnut dark squares. The pieces are beautiful, intricate, and the weight balance is absurdly good. You can tip them almost completely on their sides and they will swing back to the upright position.They glide against the smooth board with the perfect amount of friction. Everything feels amazing.
Also, customer service is great. They were very helpful and quick to respond with my questions via email regarding my order. This website is pretty buggy for me (Google Chrome), but customer service more than made up for any inconveniences with interacting with the site. Will continue shopping here for sure.
Thank you HOS!
