Elegant Chessmen Collection: A Fusion of Tradition and Craftsmanship

Dive into the world of chess with our curated Elegant Chessmen Collection. Each set in this collection embodies the fusion of traditional Staunton designs with the unparalleled craftsmanship that our brand is renowned for. From seasoned aficionados to casual players, our diverse range of chessmen offers something for every level of interest and expertise, all while providing a touch of sophistication to any game.


A Palette of Premium Materials

Our Elegant Chessmen Collection spans a variety of premium materials, offering an array of tactile and visual experiences:


  • Sheesham and Boxwood: The Victoria Series Sheesham and Boxwood Chessmen blend the warm, rich tones of Sheesham wood with the classic, light colour of boxwood, creating a striking contrast that is both visually appealing and delightful to play with.

  • Ebonised Boxwood: Ebonised boxwood offers the luxurious look of ebony at a more accessible price point, featured in our Victoria Series, Oxford Series, and Leningrad Series. This material provides the elegance of dark pieces with the durability and fine grain of boxwood.

  • Golden Rosewood: Known for its beautiful golden hue and smooth finish, our Jacob Knight Golden Rosewood Staunton Chess Pieces and French Knight Series bring a warm, inviting look to the chessboard.


Craftsmanship Meets Design

Each piece in the collection is carved with precision and care, ensuring that the knights, bishops, rooks, queens, and kings are not only recognizable by their classic Staunton silhouette but also distinguished by unique details that set each series apart:


  • The Leningrad Series: Offers a modern take on the traditional Staunton design with its sleek profile and impressive stature, available in both ebonised and acacia versions.

  • The Highgrove and French Knight Series: These sets stand out for their detailed craftsmanship, with the French Knight Series available in both rosewood and ebonised options, offering players a choice in aesthetic without compromising on quality.

  • The Fierce Knight Series: Comes with a case for easy transport and storage, featuring bold, aggressive styling that makes a statement on the board.


An Array of Choices for Every Player

Whether you're drawn to the classic elegance of the Frankfurt and Conquest Series in ebonised boxwood or the intricate details and rich colours of the Atlantic Series in rosewood, our collection ensures that every player can find their perfect match. Each set has been selected not only for its beauty and playability but also for its ability to inspire and enhance the chess-playing experience.
