The Staunton series chess piece set "Imperial" stands out with a majestic design featuring rounded shapes and exceptional attention to detail.

In particular, the knight of this set captures attention, as it meticulously replicates the head features of a horse. The precisely crafted mane, the forward-pointing ears, and the tilt of the head exude a sense of grandeur and pride. A notable characteristic of the rook is its rounded battlements, a design language that is also found in the queen and king.

For the crafting of these chess pieces, natural and ebonized boxwood wood was used. This choice not only gives the pieces a noble appearance but also a deep and impenetrable blackness, bestowing the set with its first-class appearance. Recommended options for a chessboard include black or dark brown woods like wenge, which harmoniously complement the black of the chess pieces.

Each chess piece has been carefully felted and additionally weighted to ensure the protection of the chessboard's surface and precise handling of the chess pieces during the game. With a king height of 96 mm, the pieces adhere to tournament standards, allowing the set to be used in official chess competitions. Additionally, extra queens are included in the set to facilitate pawn promotions without the need for substitute pieces.

To best showcase the beauty of these chess pieces, it is recommended to use a chessboard with square sizes of 55 - 58 mm. On such a chessboard, the pieces are optimally displayed, and their proportions appear balanced and harmonious.
