To pamper you, The House of Staunton is proud to offer the W.T. Pinney Reproduction Chessmen. This club sized Chess set features a 4.0" King with a 1.5" diameter base. The captivating feature of the Pinney chessmen is the unique Knight. Somewhat slab-sided and simple, the Knights have an allure all of their own – to some, it is an acquired taste. W. T. Pinney chessmen were constant fixtures in chess clubs and tournament halls through out the country from the 1930s through the late 1950s. The chessmen are often featured on the cover and pages of Chess Review, edited by Al Horowitz, throughout the over three decades of the Magazine’s existence. The Chess pieces are hand carved by our master artisans and crafted out of the highest grade woods. The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with luxurious billiard cloth base pads on all of the Chess pieces.
As with all of our Chessmen, the W.T. Pinney Reproduction Chess set exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality. It has been designed to withstand the rigours of practical play while maintaining an elegance which has become the hallmark of a House of Staunton chess set. The design, quality and craftsmanship of this set is UNMATCHED by any set of Chessmen in its price range. Nothing even comes close!
The Chessmen are new and each set consists of 34 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton over 10 years ago.
Our Classical Tiroir Display Chessboard offers unmatched luxury at a very affordable price. The veneered Chessboard has a satin finsih and comes in two sizes:
- 2.25" Squares with an overall size of 22.5" x 22.5" x 4.5".
Unlike traditional Chessboards that require a separate box for piece storage, our Classical Tiroir Display Chessboard features two drawers with individual compartments for piece storage. Each drawer will hold 34 Staunton Pattern Chessmen (**Recommended - 3.25" King or less for the 1.75" square Tiroir and between 3.5"-3.875" King for the 2.25" square Tioroir) and has an additional compartment for holding draughts (checkers).
