Der Figurensatz wird von Meisterhand geschnitzt und ist aus den hochwertigsten Hölzern gefertigt. Die Figuren sind stark gewichtet, mit luxuriösen Billardtuchunterlagen ausgestattet und besitzen ein edles Finish.Alle Figuren sind aus dem besonders robusten Buchsbaumholz, wobei die dunklen mit einem sehr ästhetischen rötlichen Farbton gebeizt werden.

Wie alle Figurensätze von House of Staunton steht auch dieser Vertreter der "Grandmaster"-Serie für eine perfekte Kombination aus unverwechselbarer Schönheit und Funktionalität. Sie wurde entwickelt, um den Belastungen des praktischen Spiels standzuhalten und gleichzeitig Eleganz auszustrahlen, die zum Markenzeichen des amerikanischen Herstellers geworden ist. Design, Qualität und Handwerkskunst sind in seiner Preisklasse einzigartig.

Das Set besteht aus 34 Figuren, darunter vier Damen, wie es bei House of Staunton bereits seit 1993 Standard ist.

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 and a beautiful finish. These Chessmen have been designed for those players looking for exceptionally well-crafted wooden Chessmen at a reasonable price.

As with all of our Chess sets, the Grandmaster Series Chessmen exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality. It has been designed to withstand the rigors 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.

The set consists of 34 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton in 1993.

Why are they called Gilded?

Gilded, whose definition means "to give an enhanced appearance", is the perfect way to describe these Chess pieces. Our master artisans hand apply a finish to Natural Boxwood Chess pieces to create the striking assortment of wood colors options that you see above. This allows us to offer our Gilded Collection at a very reasonable price, while still delivering the highest aesthetic experience to our customers. Further, because both armies are crafted out of Boxwood, they are extremely durable and highly resistant to developing hair line cracks.
