Unusual

Chess Sets

Staunton was created for a reason (see Staunton Origin). But why not have a staunton based design with a significant tweak on the style - an unusual chess set. Of course, it's still a quality product, and still crafted with great skill, many are still weighted, and most of ours are Staunton based.

But with the increased popularity of chess, many more unusual designs are available and are a perfect unique gift idea. An unusual chess set, something that isn't seen in many homes but we hope it will be in yours soon.
