Unusual Chess Sets | Chess Pieces

Chess Sets that are unusual and Outstanding

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.
