Old English Style Chessmen Reproduction.
Offered here is a faithful reproduction of a set of Old English Style Chessmen in antiqued Boxwood and Rosewood. The King stands an impressive 4-1/8″ tall with a 1-1/2″ diameter base. A unique feature of this set is the massive Rooks, designed to reflect their rank as a major piece. These stately Old English Style Chess pieces are nicely weighted for ballast and stability. Each of the chess pieces is cushioned atop green felt base pads. This set of chessmen includes an extra pair of Queens to assist during Pawn Promotion, a feature pioneered by us in 1995. These chess pieces are best played and displayed on a chessboard with 2-1/4″ squares. The House of Staunton red Mahogany storage box shown is included.
