The World's finest Plastic Chessmen by House of Staunton! This set is based on the world famous 4.0" Marshall design, and is a very accurate reproduction. The set ships standard with four (4) Queens and weighs 25 ounces (excluding the extra two Queens). As with every House of Staunton product you get more than you expect. The chessmen are available in several color combinations. Pieces have real green felt on bottom
- King height: 2 7/8"
- King base: 1 5/16" (1.312 / 33mm)
- King weight: 1.2 oz.
- Entire chess set weight: 1 lbs. 9 oz.
- This weight is for 2 half sets
- Suggested Board Size: 1 3/4" - 2"
Very satisfying pieces.
The Plastic is of high quality and the pieces are nicely weighted and of great design.
I wanted a smaller set to the one I currently have which is a set I bought 16 years ago from Chesshouse. 3 3/4 inch King. 62 grams! To me this set is matched very well with the 14” roll up. I ordered the Ivory and Red and in the future might order the White and Black as well. Thank you..
Perfect replacement sets for Chess4 'war chess' (4-player) that lost some pieces to grandkids. They all love to play, but it's hard when someone has to use a penny or a pebble, and it's hard to keep a set intact. Now I have spares. They're a great size for any 'standard' chess/checkers board like you'd get from a department store.
This set is the right size for over-the-board studying and analysis with my choice of smaller wood chessboards and roll-up mats. The pieces are weighted so they are stable and do not topple over. There are different color combinations that can be mixed and matched to provide contrast with my choice of chessboards. Lastly, the design, shapes, sizes and base widths of the pieces are pleasing to my eyes and do not cause any confusion even after hours of study and staring at the pieces.
