We have here the Professional Staunton chess pieces or sometimes regarded as the Paul Morphy Series of 1884.
These particular chess pieces are carved from blocks of wood. 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, inparticular 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. A wonderful set to add to your collection of staunton chess pieces made from the best wood by the masters of craft in their field.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

We are a family business that focus strictly around customer service and ensuring our customers have a fantastic all round experience. We are also the largest store selling both Chess and Backgammon sets of great variations.

A common question that confuses many, infact there is no official provider of staunton chess pieces. These chess pieces are named after a gentleman, Howard Staunton who put forward a design of chess pieces made with precision and weight to prevent them toppling over. Staunton chess pieces are all manufactured by skilled craftsmen in Amritsar, India.

This is the official Chessgammon store, we are also present on eBay, Amazon and ETSY. However purchasing from the incorrect listing will mean you may be purchasing from a 3rd party dropshipper. This makes it incredibly difficult for you to arrange replacements/ complain about any potential damages.
