The House of Staunton is proud to offer another masterpiece - The Cooke Series Staunton pattern Chessmen. It is exact reproduction of the Jaques of London Chessmen Circa 1849 Cooke Staunton Pattern Chessmen. These Chessmen feature a 3 5/8" King with a 1.75" Diameter base and are crafted out of Black & Natural Lacquered Boxwood . There is some controversy as to who actually designed these revolutionary chessmen, Nathaniel Cooke, John Jaques or Howard Staunton. What is known is that, on 1st March, 1849, Nathaniel Cooke, 198, Strand, London, registered an Ornamental Design for a set of Chess-Men, under the Ornamental Designs Act of 1842.. The sole manufacturer was the London firm of John Jaques and bore the name of the most prominent player of that time, Howard Staunton. 


As with all of our Chess sets, the Player Series Chessmen exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality. It has been designed to withstand the rigors of practical play while maintaining an elegance which has become the hallmark of a House of Staunton chess set. The design, quality and craftsmanship of this set is UNMATCHED by any set of Chessmen in its price range. Nothing even comes close!


The Chessmen are new and each set consists of 34 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton over 10 years ago.




Crafted in Spain, The House of Staunton Standard Traditional Black Anegre/ Bird's Eye Maple Wooden Chessboard features Black Anegre (dark) and Bird's Eye Maple (light) squares with a Rosewood frame. This Chessboard is 0.5" thick and has a gloss finish.



The Premium Chess Box is lined in green billiard cloth, divided and features brass quadrant hinges and a lock & key. The Premium Chess Box comes with the House of Staunton logo laser etched on the lid of the box. Shown is the Bird's Eye Maple Premium Chess Box.
