About Heirloom American Staunton Chess Set.
Each Heirloom set combines a true US handcrafted solid walnut and maple hardwood chessboard with a unique set of chess pieces to suit a wide variety of tastes.
The "American Staunton" heirloom chess set offers a wonderfully rich playing experience with felt base pieces that slide effortlessly across the board and feel extra stable when placed on the board.
The chessboard is handcrafted in Pennsylvania from locally sourced premium walnut and maple woods. The process of creating the boards takes many months, from the drying and curing of woods, to the special cutting and assembly process, to the final details that include grooves, beveled edge, engraving, and the multiple finishes that gives it the trademark luxurious and distinguishably smooth surface. Over many months, Raphael created this chessboard model inspired by Drueke's obsolete works. It has become a remarkable showpiece and platform for any set of chess pieces one owns that are suitably sized, usually 3 3/4" tall on average.
The American Staunton chess pieces are weighted and well balanced with a low center of gravity. The particular design is hard to find yet relatively inexpensive.
For display or frequent play, this heirloom quality chess set will be enjoyed for years and spare pieces are most likely available for many years should they ever be needed.
