A new style here at ChessUSA, these pieces were chosen as a crossroads between affordability and durability, without sacrificing the staunton elegance. It's reminicent of the classic French staunton style, but makes itself unique by taking a more robust profile compared to some of its contemperaries. From the proudly adorned king, to the dramatic crenellations of the rook, this set stands apart as one befitting of a hearty defensive player.
These well weighted and balanced chessmen feature extra queens and felted bottoms.
The deluxe staunton chess pieces have been paired with our 18" Walnut and Maple footed chessboard - a simple and elegant design that compliments many different styles, providing a chic look for both display and play.
