The famed Staunton Chess Set takes pride of place amongst the Jaques of London family. Speaking to our long-standing heritage in British games manufacture, the classic design dates back more than 170 years. Delivering the same hand-crafted designs today, Jaques continue to breathe life into gaming traditions of the past, with 21st century craftsmanship borrowing the skills of our artisan forefathers, to keep the Staunton design alive for players new and old.
For the most experienced and serious players, Jaques of London brings its mastery of design to the faithful reconstruction of our most famed 1855 Staunton chess set editions. Produced in limited runs, these exclusive sets are created in rich mahogany, beautiful beech and opulent oak hardwoods. Chess pieces, boards and caskets alike are given the same treatment, for a truly special playing experience.
In providing for players of all experience levels, our Staunton Chess Sets are available in starter forms, with easy-handling travel sets proving ideal for taking checkmate competition on the road.
Jaques of London has been instrumental in the history of the game. Our Staunton chess sets remain a keen thank you to players of today, just as they have in centuries past.
