The Staunton chess pieces "Oxford" pay homage to the elegance and grandeur of English chess, which is reflected in every detail of this chess piece set.

The knight stands out with an upright posture and forward-facing ears, while the king wears a crown resembling an umbrella, and the rooks are adorned with subtly designed battlements. These chess pieces embody the essence of the Staunton design, appreciated by chess players worldwide for over a century. The knights have been meticulously hand-carved, while the other pieces have been intricately turned and manually finished to emphasize their fine details.

The chess pieces in this set have been crafted from carefully selected boxwood. The white pieces are made from naturally processed boxwood, while the impenetrable, deep black of the black pieces is achieved through an intricate ebonization process. Similarly ebonized black chessboards or those made from dark woods like wenge are particularly suitable to complement this chess set.

With a king height of 95 mm, these chess pieces meet the requirements for tournament chess pieces and are perfect for use in official competitions or for private collections. Additionally, extra queens are included in the set to facilitate smooth pawn promotions without the need for replacement pieces.

A chessboard with a square size of 55 - 58 mm is optimal for this chess set. On such a board, the chess pieces showcase their full beauty, and the balanced proportions between the pieces and the chessboard create an aesthetically pleasing presentation.
