Staunton Chess Pieces
Wooden Staunton Chess Pieces
Superb range of competitivley prices hand carved quality chess pieces in the Staunton design. The Staunton design chess set rapidly turned into the world standard for genuine and easygoing play. The generally low creation expense conveyed chess to the masses and did much to promote the amusement. Its clean, straightforward outline has never been broken even with - the first plan looks as cutting edge today as it did upon its presentation more than 145 years prior. Note the amazing workmanship on the Knights. Gotten from the respectable steeds whose appearances are caught in the Parthenon frieze (confiscated in 1806 by Thomas Bruce, 7th Lord of Elgin and since alluded to as the Elgin Marbles), the unmistakable, finely nitty gritty Knight head was the sign of the Staunton outline.
