Luxury Chess Sets

From Chess Baron



Beautiful things are rare in this world. Have you ever had that experience of looking at something and wanting to just keep looking? Our chess sets below are just like that - you want to hold them in your hand and just keep looking and not let them go. We've tried hard with our chess photography, but it's difficult to really convey qualities such as majesty, beauty, wistfulness, and pride. As you view the pictures try to imagine the pieces in your hand - the weight, the rich colour of the wood, the finely crafted finish. We assure you that once you have experienced the quality of any one of these luxury sets you will be drawn to play the wonderful game of chess again and again.



King John in Brass Chess Set (X2026)

King Height 4 inch. Base Diameter 1.6 inch. Triple Weighted 172g!


This brass set has a King that is 4 inch in height and weighs a hefty 172g. The pieces are luxurious and have strong attention to detail. The set is clearly differentiated for both sides (some metal sets can be a little confusing in colour difference for each side). Over time the pieces improve in appearance as the air causes colour amelioration, older sets are often prized for their colouring. The detail for the knight is outstanding for a set made in metal - often these sets have only a broad detail. For a Staunton metal chess set this is the finest set we have seen in all respects.

King John Very Heavy Copper and Stainless Steel Chess Pieces (X3026)

King Height 4 inch. Base Diameter 1.6 inch. Triple Weighted 202g! Double Queens


A very heavy stainless steel and copper chess set that has a King that is just over 4 inches in height and weighs a hefty 202g. The best in metal chess sets we've seen. The heavy pieces feel great. A strong attention is made in detail with bold design elements. The set is clearly defined in colouring for both sides. Over time the pieces improve in appearance with minor colour changes, older sets are prized more for their aged colouring. The detail for the knight is outstanding for a set made in copper and steel - often these type of sets have only broad detail - but these are the best available and therefore very detailed. For a Staunton copper and steel chess set this is the finest set we have seen in all respects - the design is brought to you after an extensive search for the best in metal sets.

The Sebastian in Very Heavy Steel and Copper (X2029)

King Height 4.25 inch. Base Diameter 1.3 inch. Heavily Weighted at 114g


You may have noticed that we don't offer many metal sets. This is because we have scoured the world in an attempt to stand out with a range that is not just large, but also unique and the best available. This copper and steel set, very heavy and yet remarkably detailed is a good example of this policy. A luxury pewter finish set with distinction that has many uses - playing chess or using offensively for burglars. You could actually put up a sign saying 'Have very heavy chess set and not afraid to use it'. They wouldn't dare enter. But the purpose of course, is delightful chess playing with elegance, and this set does it. It is well priced for the level of luxury afforded, and a set to be proud of. The board should be 1.5 inch or possibly 1.75 inch squares.

Beautiful chess sets for the next generation

Thank you for spending some time in browsing these products. Did you note the amazing detail of these luxury chess sets? Did you see the detail of the teeth on the knights? Whenever I have the inclination to get my toothbrush out I know it's a good set! If you can actually see the gaps between the teeth - it marks the difference between a good quality chess set and those that are of lower quality. Of course, it's not just the teeth, the rest of the knight and the detail of the other pieces must match - but not many artisans will go to the detail of carving out each tooth without giving similar attention to the mane, the face and the detail belonging to other parts of the chess pieces in the set. This also leaves out the whole major reason to shop ChessBaron - the talented design of the piece, a chess set design that makes the difference between conventional chess stores and ChessBaron. Many of the designs available through this section cannot be found elsewhere. We pride ourselves in displaying a remarkable range of chess sets that is difficult to beat for beauty, tradition and innovation. Each set can be paired with an optional chess case and/or chess board.
