Nobility Wood Chess Pieces
This set has been crafted to imitate the prevailing design and dimension of the original Staunton pattern chess men, registered by Nathaniel Cook in March of 1849 and first manufactured by Jaques of London in September 1849. The distinctive feature of this set is in the Knight design, which is modeled after the noble steeds from the Greek Parthenon. Its craftsmanship is stunning.
