Chess Sets like the X2028 Earl Anthony

When we first looked at the design prototype of the Earl Anthony chess set for inclusion into our product line - we were astonished with the quality and it's almost live appearance. Funny - just a chunk of wood - but the skill and dexterity our artisan carvers have is admirable. We hoped that the result of the prototype would be something excellent and of course, we were not disappointed.

It's interesting how the market for chess design has changed in the last few years. The UK used to be just a market for standard staunton style chess pieces - but now the idea of staunton with a flair - a staunton piece with something extra is very popular. Deservedly so.
