The "American Staunton" chess piece set presents itself with a timeless and classic design that has been in use for many years in both tournaments and private chess play. This set, belonging to one of the most renowned Staunton designs, is highly popular in chess clubs, where it is often used in training.

The standout knights of this set are a beautiful sight to behold. They have been meticulously carved by hand and finely detailed. Their design evokes the grace of a horse, adding a significant amount of elegance to the game of chess. The upright posture of the knights makes them easy to handle and provides them with a stable stance. The other chess pieces have been turned and subsequently hand-detailed. This manufacturing process accentuates the precise contours and characteristics of each piece, giving them a natural and appealing appearance.

Boxwood and acacia wood are used in the production of these chess pieces. These wood types are known for their stability and attractive textures, providing the chess pieces with a natural and timeless look. Mahogany or walnut wood chessboards, in particular, complement this set in terms of colour.

The chess pieces are not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional. All the pieces are carefully weighted and underlaid with felt. These features ensure a comfortable grip and smooth movement across the chessboard without causing any damage. An additional feature of this set is the included extra queens. These allow for the representation of a second queen during pawn promotion, enabling tactical manoeuvres without distraction from substitute pieces.

This Staunton chess piece set complies with tournament requirements and has a king height of 97 mm. To properly showcase and play with the chess pieces on the chessboard, a square size of 55 - 58 mm is recommended.
