The original Staunton design, as invented by John Jaques of London in 1847, was the de-facto standard for chess pieces by the end of the 19th century.

This set differs slightly from our other Fischer/Spassky chess set in that all the pieces are made from boxwood; the 'black' pieces are stained or 'ebonised' boxwood.

It is also important to note that it is not entirely accurate to the genuine Fischer/Spassky design set - the castle crenellations are taller, the bishop is slightly more elongated and the knight is a bit more detailed. Jaques continue to sell this as a Fischer / Spassky set so maybe they know something that we don't. In the meantime, most people think that the design is rather nicer albeit not the exactly the same as the 1972 set so we are happy to make it available still.

Boards must be ordered separately.

Approx. Dimensions:

8.9cm King

Jaques themselves produce two styles of chequerboard - their standard inlaid chessboard and their premium Chequerboard - the Staunton chessboard with a raised outer border.

Jaques chequerboards and boards from other leading manufacturers can be found on our Chessboards page.
