With a lasting legacy in British board game manufacture, Jaques of London is proud to present our wooden chess sets, crafted with the precision of more than 225 years of gaming artistry. From deep mahoganies to natural hardwoods, every one of our designs speaks to a heritage that has delivered the finest gaming experiences to our customers for centuries past.
Famed as the creator of the much-loved Staunton wooden chess set design, Jaques places great emphasis upon unveiling the distinguished beauty of this ancient game to players old and new. Produced with only the highest grade approved timbers, each piece in the collection stands as a luxurious homage to the king of board games.
Steeped in history as the ultimate strategic challenge, chess has stood as a proving ground to some of the greatest minds of our times. Some say there are more possible iterations of chess games than there are atoms in the observable universe! It serves not only as a game for experienced grandmasters but one which accommodates younger minds eager to learn and develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
With all of our wooden chess sets presented in bespoke presentation cases, Jaques of London continues to keep the majesty of the game alive well into the 21st century.
