These large plastic pieces are beautiful and very heavily weighted for the most discerning players! A 4" king, extra queens, large 1-7/8" base, and classic original Staunton design are just some of the great features of these chess pieces. The entire set weighs in at more than 3.8 pounds, making them even heavier than our Premier Pieces!

These pieces are available in black or red for the dark pieces and ivory/white or natural for the light pieces.

  • King stands 4 inches

    Classic 1849 Staunton Design, But Production Flaws Cast a Shadow

    Posted by Thomas Muething on 10th Feb 2020

    This is the most expensive of the 6 different superior quality plastic sets I initially ordered from WSC - I have ordered some more since. With its 4" kings and elegant ,original 1849 Staunton design, the Collector Series looks impressive on the board (2.4" - 60mm squares are required, minimum), and the pieces are certainly well (1.5kg - 3.3lbs) and evenly weighted, with 78g kings and 52g knights. If only there weren't a couple of caveats. I chose "ivory" pieces for white and came to regret my choice: they are truly *stark*, hospital white, not really looking like ivory - especially since they're in matte finish. Also, a number of production flaws are more glaringly obvious than they would have been with "natural" white pieces. Namely, some yellowish colour stains on several pieces, most notably the queens (To their credit, WSC sent me replacement queens immediately when I asked for them!), and of course the dreaded molding seams. If you're attracted by the classic design and the generally imposing "board presence", I would strongly recommend getting the "natural" variety for white - I chose that for the smaller, 3.75" version. Shipping was very quick (less than 3 days from Alabama to Germany via FedEx Priority) and super-safe, the WSC service excellent.
