"Crafted from 40,000-year old Wooly Mammoth Ivory (White) and Genuine Ebony (Black), they capture the exquisite design and proportions of the original Staunton pattern Chess set, registered by Nathaniel Cooke and produced by Jaques of London in 1849."
To pamper you, The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Mammoth Ivory & Ebony Collector Series Signature Chess set. This heirloom quality Chess set features a 4.4" King with a 2.0"diameter base. The Chess pieces are hand carved by our master artisans and crafted out of the finest materials. Because of the natural weight of Mammoth Ivory, the pieces have an excellent feel that does not require any artificial weighting. The opposing army, which has been crafted from Genuine Ebony, have been weighted to match their Ivory counterparts.
The Chessmen are new and each set consists of 34 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton in 1993.
The Chess Set comes with a personalized Certificate of Authenticity and an original manufacturer's label indicating the production number, with an adhesive backing that would allow it to be affixed to the underside of a Chess box.
