    The Calvert Bone Luxury Chess Pieces - 3.25" King

    Product Code: MENBCAL325

    Description

    This beautifully rich combination of chessmen and display case is a wonderful complement to any collection. 
     

    This elaborate early 1800s English Playing Chess Set design, referred to in the literature as a Calvert Pattern, is derived from earlier German designs from the 15th through the 19th centuries. It is often, but wrongly, attributed to John Calvert, a Master of the Worshipful Company of Turners, located at 189 Fleet Street, from around 1790 to 1840. He specialized in exquisitely turned Chess sets for the aristocracy and for the many coffee shops and clubs where Chess was a popular pastime.
     

    Chessmen of this type were actually manufactured throughout the early-to-mid Victorian period by John Jaques of London and Thomas Lund of Cornhill. The Calvert playing sets were ultimately supplanted by the Staunton pattern chessmen, which were introduced to the public in the fall of 1849 by the firm of John Jaques of London. The pattern dates from 1815, at which time White and red colored pieces were popular. The slender baluster stems and the unusual form of the King and Queen with their pierced floral crowns, makes an attractive and highly decorative design.

     
    This reproduction is an exact copy of the original the original Calvert Chess set that is crafted from bone. The bone that was used to craft these Chessmen was hand selected by our lead craftsman to insure that only the purist, Whitest bone was used. The result is a striking Chess set whose color and appearance is very similar to that of the original Calvert sets.
     

    THESE ARE ACTUAL HAND CARVED BONE CHESSMEN
