The "French Staunton" chess piece set is well-known for its classic design and enjoys great popularity in chess clubs and tournaments.

The standout feature of this set is undoubtedly the knight, which has been meticulously hand-carved in its entirety. Its embellishments and fine details represent the classic elegance that characterizes a set of French chess pieces. The kings, queens, and other pieces have been precisely turned and subsequently hand-finished to complement the intricate details and ensure that each piece exudes individual beauty.

The chess pieces have been crafted from boxwood in its natural and ebonized form, offering a bright, white colour for the white pieces and a deep black colour for the black chess pieces. Furthermore, the set is known for its functional features. Each piece is equipped with an additional weight and felt, providing not only a pleasant touch but also protecting the chessboard and ensuring excellent grip. Swift chess moves can be executed effortlessly. Regarding wood choices for a chessboard, black woods or dark brown woods such as Wenge harmonize particularly well with this set.

With a king height of 99 mm, these chess pieces are suitable for chess tournaments and meet the necessary requirements. Therefore, they are also suitable for use in chess clubs and should not be missing from any collection due to their popularity. The extra queens included in the set allow for smooth pawn promotions without the need for replacement pieces.

To ensure an optimal size proportion between the chess pieces and the chessboard, the use of a chessboard with square sizes ranging from 55 to 58 mm is recommended. This allows the pieces to showcase their full magnificence, and the overall presentation of the chess game appears aesthetically balanced and appealing.
