Look towards the end of the section for often missed excellent chess sets - we can't squeeze everything into the luxury chess section, and these last few chess sets only just miss the category - sometimes for arbitrary reasons.

King Height 6 inch. Base Diameter 1.75 inch
This product from Chess Baron:Gosh - 6 inches? Eeek - what's the weather like up there buddy? The 6 inch king takes the spotlight, but notice other aspects of the chess pieces too. The design of the King and Bishop chess pieces are highlighted by a series of mid discs, kind of Jupiter-esque.

King Height 3.3 inch. Base Diameter 1.4 inch
We made the Meghdoot in Grade One Rosewood specially for a customer, and decided that it would be a great addition to the range. Note the easy curves of the knight which is very pleasing to the eye. With a smaller king (3.3 inches) designed for a smaller board (optional extra) taking up less space in the household, the Rosewood Meghdoot is a great purchase for these and may other reasons. It just looks so nice. Chess Baron Chess Sets: Because we know you care - we care. Buy Peace of mind - Buy Chess Baron.

Towards the end of the mid-price range we have some often missed outstanding value chess sets. After all - if you're this far through, why not go to the luxury section - right? Wrong. These are luxury too - but there has to be some price division. This chess set could just be the best value in the entire inventory. It represent particular value across our range. The chess pieces are triple weighted, made from solid chidar wood with the dark pieces blackened for the ebony appearance. The chess pieces are excellently carved with great attention to the detail of the knight. The pieces are more reminiscent of expensive sets of chess pieces judging from the attention to detail in the knight and it's companion chess pieces. The set is traditional Staunton. It has a king with height of 3.75 inch. The chess pieces would be well suited to a board with 1.75 inch or 2 inch individual squares.
King Height 6 inch. Base Diameter 1.65 inch. Weighted
This product from Chess Baron: A beautiful ornate design of Staunton based chess at its finest. Don't tell the shoppers looking in our luxury section, but this one is better than the ornate designs that are twice the price of this one. Bud Rosewood. Get that? The rarest wood available has been used to create this innovative set. Rosewood comes in three varieties, Golden Rosewood - or Sheesham is the most plentiful part of the tree, followed by what we call just 'Rosewood', then the root of the tree is the part we call Bud Rosewood, the smallest part, therefore the rarest part, but not just rare - it brings out such rich colours in chess pieces that it tends to be sought after as much as Ebony. Rarity apart, the design of this chess set is an example of chess sets that are set apart by beauty of design. The Song of Solomon is a design of chess sets that is unequalled elsewhere.
King Height 3 inch Base Diameter 1.3 inches. Weighted

The smaller version is the E2019 on the economy page. The pieces are solid, King height is 3 inches, and the whole product is made to last longer than you and I.
King Height 4 inch. Base Diameter 1.75 inch. Triple Weighted 72g.
OK - let's get real. This really is traditional staunton chess - no messing, and excellent value it is too. A triple weighted chess set for a surprisingly low price. The set is high quality, crafted in rosewood and solid chidar. The high triple weighting is unusual for this price and the overall quality is not compromised in any way. One of the best value items in our inventory. The board size for these chess pieces should ideally be with 2 inch squares.
King Height 2.5 Inches
An exceptional travel magnetic chess set with a King at 2.5 inch high and a total weight of 1.9kg. The set measures 12 inch x 12 inch and is 1.6 inch thick. The set has an internal insert for each chess piece. The pieces are well finished with good attention to detail, and the attached, enclosing board is very high in quality. The set and it's parts are finished very well and the inserts fit well with no sticking or rough parts. We have one of these in the office ready to pack away when the boss walks in - it's our choice when the need is 'on the go'. We sent Janet to the North Pole with this one, and it came back intact. Admittedly the chess pieces were now frozen on instead of magnetized - but it still did very well. There is a ball-bearing midway through the insert edge to keep the insert in it's place, this operates smoothly and without any exertion needed to open or close. With many cheap travel sets on the market, this isn't one of them - a very good value and high quality magnetic chess set. (And no - she didn't even bring a polar bear back for us).
King Height 3.75 inch. Base Diameter 1.25 inch. Double Weighted 31g.
A little more tradition please! Well, a little closer to it anyway. In the mid-priced section these chess pieces are among our favorite. They remind us of a totem pole. And no, I don't say that about every set. Just a few carved design lines seem to make a huge difference. These sheesham wood chess pieces have ornate carvings with an attractive, more traditional shape to compliment their creative design. The king chess piece is 3.75 inches in height with a base of 1.25 inches. The carvings cover the full height of the King and the piece has a curved symmetry that is really attractive. You'll be dancing around the chess set like a totem pole dancing for rain. The board for this set should have 1.5 inch squares.
King Height 3.75 inch. Base Diameter 1.6 inch. Double Weighted 44g
One of our special designs - at 44g for the King this represents a well weighted unusual set of chess pieces that has an ornate design. Weighting matters. Cheap sets fail to have good auxiliary weighting which results in a unsatisfactory playing experience because of pieces falling over - not so with this double weighted chess design. All that thought into strategy and the pieces get knocked and you can't remember the positions (a handy technique of you are losing). This set of double weighted chess pieces are of high quality not just because of the weight but also through the extra detail in the pieces. The Staunton design is solidly retained but the ornate intricate detail gives these chess pieces a flavour rarely seen in Staunton circles. The board for this set should have 1.75 inch squares.
King Height 3 inch. Base Diameter 1.25 inch. Double Weighted 35g.
Tradition mixed with Innovation and mixed more with Novelty in the Canon chess pieces. The most striking chess piece is the castle with it's classic shape turned into a cannon, but the other chess pieces compliment it. Aggressive huh? It's all.... well,... all ready for battle with four cannons to join in the war. I'm out of here! All the pieces have a chunky base with artful carvings. Notice how the Queen chess piece has a sash painted on her base almost like a skirt. The knight has a determined expression and pose. A striking set that says 'different' throughout. A rustic board with 1.5 inch or 1.75 inch individual squares will be suitable for this innovative example of a set of chess pieces.
King Height 2.25 inch, Individual Squares are 1 inch
This travel chess set is very good value - having very thick wooden casing and good quality chess men. It has a highly glossed surface with lovely high quality chess pieces. The pieces are carved with great attention to detail. They have good magnetism and can easily stay on the board with the board turned upside down. The magnetism is unobtrusive but very functional. The set is 10 inches X 10 inches. A lovely magnetic chess set from ChessBaron.
King Height 3.75 inch. Base Diameter 1.5 inch. Double Weighted 32g.
This black and white is Staunton through and through. The white pieces has a touch of light yellow to provide a bit of uniqueness to this set. The King is 3.75 inch high and the set has good weighting. The rook chess piece has an attractive stumpy style and lends a look of solidarity in it's flank position among the chess pieces. But the striking color difference is the strength of this set of chess pieces, and the factor which makes this chess set an excellent choice if you like black and white.
