The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Aversa Series Chess set. A full tournament-sized Chess set, it features a 4.0" King with a 1.875" diameter base. 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 luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a beautiful finish.
As with all of our Chess sets, the Aversa 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 adhesive backing that would allow it to be affixed to the underside of a Chess box.
Crafted in Italy, the House of Staunton Superior Traditional Vavona Burl / Maple wooden Chessboard features Vavona Burl (dark) and Maple (light) squares with a Vavona frame. This veneered Chessboard is 0.5" thick, has a gloss finish and a beautiful moulded edge.
