The House of Staunton is proud to offer another exquisite masterpiece - The Club-Size 1849 Cooke Series Staunton pattern Precision Chessmen. It is an accurate recreation of the very first Boxwood and Ebony Staunton Pattern Chessmen, registered by Nathaniel Cooke in 1849.
This is a full Club-size set, featuring a 4-3/8" King with a 1-7/8" diameter base. The Chessmen are very heavily weighted using Frank Camaratta’s proprietary weighting system that will prevent your Ebony chessmen from ever developing hairline cracks, a problem prevalent in new and original weighted Ebony chessmen.
Each set of chessmen is cushioned in green English baize and housed in an accurate reproduction of the original baize-lined Mahogany box, complete with the small green Staunton Chessmen label placed on the underside of the lid and the white manufacturer’s label, bearing the unique production number of each set, affixed to the underside of the box – exactly like the original. 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 20 years ago.
Your 1849 Cooke recreation chessmen are shipped with a Certificate of Authenticity, personally signed by Frank. Camaratta.
