The "Grace" Staunton chess pieces are highly popular among many chess players and, due to their user-friendly nature, make for an excellent set for both beginners and advanced chess players.

The craftsmanship exhibited in the creation of the knight in this chess set is evident in its impressive intricacy and meticulous design. This painstaking work not only imparts a menacing appearance but also makes it truly stand out on the chessboard. The other chess pieces have been crafted with precision turning and then hand-finished to give them their distinctive features and details.

The use of boxwood and ebonized boxwood for crafting the chess pieces creates strong contrasts and accentuates the aesthetic splendour of the set. The natural boxwood contributes a warm and lively touch, while the ebonized wood, with its deep and impenetrable blackness, gives the chess pieces a particularly striking appearance. Black or dark brown wood types are recommended when selecting a suitable chessboard.

In addition to their artistic detailing, the chess pieces also possess functional features for use in the game. Each piece in this set is thoughtfully felted and weighted, ensuring a pleasant feel and smooth manoeuvring across the chessboard. The delicate hand-finishing adds fine details to the pieces and emphasizes the characteristic traits of each individual piece.

With a king height of 91 mm, this set complies with tournament requirements, making it suitable for rated competitions. Additionally, extra queens are included, allowing pawn promotion without distraction from substitute pieces.

For the optimal presentation and use of these chess pieces, it is recommended to use a chessboard with a square size of 50 - 55 mm. This ensures that the pieces and the board are in a suitable proportion to each other.
