Product description:

These attractive chessmen in the traditional Staunton style are crafted from Sheesham and Kari wood. They are hand polished for a beautiful luster and they are weighted for greater stability. The Staunton design has become the standard for tournament play. The pieces are easily distinguishable making for easier game play. Knights are made to resemble the head and neck of a horse. Kings are the tallest pieces featuring a cross atop a closed crown. Queens are slightly smaller than the kings, and feature a coronet topped with a small ball. Rooks feature castle battlements, and bishops resemble a liturgical headdress of a western church. Pawns are the smallest and are topped by a plain ball. The pieces which represent humans (the king, queen, bishop, and pawn) feature a collar which separates the body from the head design. These can be used for tournament play and will be enjoyed for years to come.

HISTORY OF CHESS

Chess is one of the world’s most popular and beloved games with over 600 million players worldwide. The game is played in chess clubs, homes, and schools, online, via mail or email, and in tournaments. The theory and composition of chess reflects both art and science. Playing the game is known to increase brain power.

Early forms of chess are thought to have originated in northern India or Afghanistan sometime prior to 600 A.D. The game first came to Europe via Italy and Spain from Persia through trade routes around 1000 A.D. Another theory suggests the game was brought to Europe by the Moors who invaded Spain in the 8th century. Vikings took the game further north to Scandinavia and Iceland. Chess as we know it today emerged in Southern Europe during the second half of the 15th century.

Today’s chessmen were given their names by Europeans who probably were unable to pronounce the Persian names for the pieces. The six different chess pieces offer a snap shot of medieval life with its ceremonies, wars, and grandeur. The king, queen, bishop, rook, knight, and pawn represent the very way in which the ordinary men and noblemen lived their lives during medieval times.

The next time you play chess, know that you belong to a beloved tradition extending through many generations and embracing many nations.
