Cambridge Springs Staunton Chessmen.
The Cambridge Springs Staunton Chessmen are weighted and rest atop green baize base pads. The chess pieces are Boxwood and Ebony. They are also available in Natural and Black or Anjan lacquered finishes. The King stands 3-7/8″ tall with a 1-1/2″ diameter base. This set of chessmen includes an extra pair of Queens to assist during Pawn Promotion, a feature pioneered by Frank Camaratta in 1995. These Chessmen are an exact reproduction of a set of Staunton chessmen produced around 1900. The chessmen are new. The Walnut and Maple chess board is not included with these chessmen. These antique reproduction chess pieces play and display best on a chessboard with 2-1/8″ or 2-1/4″ squares. A suitable new or antique chessboard is available elsewhere on this site. Our fine collection of new and antique chess timers and clocks can be found here.
