We have here the Professional Staunton chess pieces or sometimes regarded as the Paul Morphy Series of 1884.This particular series of chess pieces is named after a famous American Chess player called Paul Charles Morphy who sadly passed away in 1884. Regarded as one of the greats of his generation Morphy had an excellent yet brief career in chess. Morphy gained his true status after consistently defeating some of the chess greats of his type, in particular Hungarian chess great Johann Lowenthal at a very young age. These chess pieces are carved in honour of the late great Paul Morphy, using the highest and perfect quality of woods and polished with a smooth yet natural finish. Each piece is also padded with a thick green felt to prevent any damage to the chess board. Each piece has been hand carved in Amritsar India, the epicentre of great skilled artisans perfecting their craft.
We also include a wonderfully veneered chess piece storage box, made from mahogany wood. The storage box is large and compatible enough to store pieces as small as 3 Inch to as large as 4 Inch. The storage box is also padded and coated in black velvet felt to prevent any damage to your chess pieces.
