The Staunton chess piece set "King's Bridal" undoubtedly represents a masterpiece of the chess craft, deserving the admiration of chess enthusiasts and collectors alike.

In this chess piece set, the knight stands out with its impressive presence and meticulous details. Its tall, upright form and elaborate features such as the reins bestow an unparalleled grace upon this knight. The king captivates with an elegantly contoured form, expertly turned, and the towering battlements of the rook impressively embody its symbolic architectural stature. All these features give the set an unmistakable beauty, infusing each piece with vitality.

For the crafting of these chess pieces, boxwood was used. In its natural form, it suits the white chess pieces very well, while ebonization gives the black pieces their deep and imposing colour. However, the manufacturing process bestows upon the pieces not only their characteristic colouration but also remarkable durability and elegance. The knight, the centrepiece of this set, was intricately hand-carved by experienced craftsmen. The remaining pieces were turned and then meticulously hand-finished to ensure that every detail shines perfectly. Black and dark brown chessboards complement this chess set well in terms of colour.

One of the outstanding features of these chess pieces is their precise balance. Each piece is carefully weighted and equipped with felt, guaranteeing not only excellent grip and tactile comfort but also protecting the chessboard from scratches. This allows for precise and fluid chess moves on the board without difficulty.

With an impressive king height of 98 mm, these chess pieces meet the standard requirements for tournament chess pieces and are, therefore, excellent for tournament play. Naturally, the set includes additional queens that can be used during pawn promotion without the need for extra replacement pieces.

For an optimal gaming experience and aesthetic appeal, the use of a chessboard with square sizes ranging from 55 to 58 mm is recommended. On such a chessboard, the pieces shine optimally, and the proportions between the chess pieces and the chessboard create an aesthetically balanced and appealing look.
