CHOKING HAZARD — Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

Staunton chess sets are the standard chess sets we are familiar with. The distinctive Knight, Bishop, and Rook are easily recognized symbols of chess the world over. The Staunton design was created by Nathanial Cook and first sold by Jaques of London in 1849. There are other designs; themes based on movies, great battles, or favorite characters, but when displaying a set nothing says “This is chess” like the standard chess sets of Staunton design.

Whether marble, wood, plastic, gold and silver, crystal, resin, coral, or glass, we have a Staunton Chess Set that will appeal to you.

Note that not all Staunton chess sets are considered tournament legal due to the size of the pieces. A tournament chess set must have 2 1/4″ squares and the King must be between 3 3/4″ and 4 1/4″.
