Staunton No. 4 Tournament Chess Pieces in Wooden Box - 3" King
Staunton chess pieces have been the standard for tournament chess since 1849. These attractive pieces, handcrafted in Poland from hornbeam wood, are packaged in a beautiful wooden box. Each chessman is weighted with metal.
- King: 3.15" (8cm). Queen: 2.76" (7cm). Pawn: 1.42" (3.6cm).
- The case measures 6.5"W x 3"H x 5"D (16.5cm x 7.5cm x 12.8cm)
- The case is made from beech and birch. Felt bottom chessmen are made from hornbeam.
- Handcrafted in Poland.
Solid, pleasant, economy set
Feels great, a nice 3” small set to whack around. The knights were slightly distorted by comparison to the lovely knights in the photos, but worth the money.
Very Nice Pieces and Box
These are nicely made wooden pieces. The box is well made, too. They are made in Poland. My chess club kids love them as do adults I play with. Another reviewer incorrectly claimed they are not weighted - they are weighted. He also complained that they are too small. No. 4 being the smallest, he should have read the description and ordered #5, 6 or 7 if he wanted a larger size.
I thought the pieces were too small. I also thought the pieces were weighted.
