The Staunton chess piece set "Oxford" showcases chess pieces of the highest elegance and precision while paying tribute to the game of chess in England.

All the chess pieces are the result of long-standing craftsmanship, which is reflected in each individual piece. The king in this set crowns himself with a majestic, umbrella-like crown, while the knight proudly stands out with an upright head and a focused gaze. The rooks, with their flattened battlements, offer excellent grip and perfectly complement the design.

The crafting of these chess pieces was carried out with the utmost precision and dedication. Boxwood and acacia wood were chosen to ensure a unique aesthetic appeal and durability. Each piece has been carefully weighted and felted, allowing for excellent handling and precise placement on the chessboard. The pieces shine on a walnut chessboard but also harmonize well with mahogany.

The knight has been intricately hand-carved, while the other pieces have been precisely turned and subsequently manually finished to highlight their intricacies and delicate details. These features ensure a comfortable grip and precise positioning on the chessboard while protecting the playing surface.

With a king height of 95 mm, these chess pieces meet the requirements for tournament chess pieces and are, therefore, excellent for use in official competitions. Additionally, two extra queens are provided to facilitate smooth pawn promotions without the need for replacement pieces.

For an attractive presentation, it is recommended to use a chessboard with square sizes ranging from 55 to 58 mm. This ensures balanced proportions between the pieces and the chessboard, creating an aesthetically pleasing overall display.
