    "Created to commemorate the legendary Hastings 1895 Tournament, it combines the form, broad bases, board presence and exquisite craftsmanship of the time period with a masterful Knight designed by the Maestro, Frank A. Camaratta, Jr."

     

    The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Hastings Series Chess set. This heirloom-quality Chess set features a 4.0" King with a 1.8" diameter base and is heavily weighted. The Chess pieces are hand carved by our master artisans and crafted out of the highest grade woods. The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with gold embossed English Leather base pads under the Kings, luxurious billiard cloth base pads on the other Chess pieces. The design of the Hastings Series Chess set combined the form, broad bases, board presence and craftsmanship of the Staunton Pattern Chess sets of the time period with an original Knight that was designed by the Maestro, Frank A. Camaratta, Jr. The Knight design reflects the adage that Chess is War, resulting in a truly ferocious beast ready to do battle on the Chess board. The Knight has attitude and is one of the Maestro's proudest creations.

     

    As with all of our Chess sets, the Hastings Series 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 in 1993.

     

    The Chess Set comes with a Individually Numbered Certificate of Authenticity and an original manufacturer's plaque indicating the production number, with an adhesivebacking that would allow it to be affixed to the underside of a Chess box.
