1849-50 Leuchars Cook Staunton Chess Set- Chess Pieces Only-Ivory& Crimson Lacquer-4.5"

$368.00 Regular price
Leuchars Set is named after William Leuchars, a retailer who sold the first Jacques sets in 1849 from his upmarket shop in Picadilly. Leuchars Knight's are typified by a plain version of the cook knight. This design was very rare and sold in few sets retailed by Leuchars. Sets of this design were retailed in Ivory combinations as well as boxwood & ebony.

Our Pieces have been Lacquer finished in Ivory White and Crimson Red as a reproduction of the Precious Ivory Sets.

The styling of each of the Leuchars Cook Chess pieces follows a certain defined grammar. The King is represented by his crown, The Queen, by her coronet. The Bishops wear distinctive miters with deep clefts. The Knights – generally considered the showstoppers among all Chessmen – have flared nostrils and high crowned manes. The Castles look solid, as they should, with widely crenulated battlements, while the pawns are topped by a plain ball.

They will find great favour with chess players, collectors and hobbyist for their distinctive looks, for the heft and solidity of their feel, for their stability which comes from their wide and weighted bases, and from the felt-lined bottoms of their bases, which create an illusion that they are floating on the Chessboard.

A Regal Masterpiece

I wasn’t familiar with the 1849-1850 Leuchars Cook Staunton with its attractively broad bases, unique sloping knights, and stylish king’s and queen’s crowns until I discovered this reproduction at Royal Chess Mall. This tall crimson and white lacquered beauty is a regal masterpiece.

Perhaps because I own several 1890-1900 Whittington Pattern, peg-in travel sets with natural bone and cochineal red-dyed pieces, I desired a full-sized red and white set. Now I own one and it’s far grander than I anticipated. Quite frankly, my admiration grew and grew for this reproduction with each piece I freed from its protective foam wrap. What superior craftsmanship in the very well turned, perfectly symmetric pieces and pawns and the strikingly carved knights. I couldn’t help but fall in love with it.

Take heed, this is no tournament set for players to treat with careless abandon even under classical time controls. Naturally, that doesn’t describe all tournament players but enough for the owner of this fine set to be wary. In my opinion, this set should be kept at home and cherished by playing through the games of the grandmasters, past and present, or when analyzing your own games. Besides, at 2-inches the King’s base is far too wide for your typical tournament board sporting 2.25-inch squares. Some may concluded from my photos that a 2.375-inch square board is still too small. In that case, opt for a board with 2.5-inch squares (~65 mm).

I feel obligated to mention the single minor defect where the lacquer didn’t take. You have to look very closely to discover a light, 0.25-inch hairline at the base on a single red rook. This in no way detracts from the five star rating I gave this set.

In conclusion, I was so impressed with this reproduction I purchase two others from Royal Chess Mall: the 3.75-inch 1849 Jacques Cook Staunton Collectors Set in stained boxwood and ebony, and the same set in boxwood and blood rosewood. Those will be reviewed separately.

Nearly Perfect

First off, Royal Chess Mall has provided great customer service throughout the purchasing process. The Leuchar chess design is my favorite. This set is a great size and has decent weight. The pieces also have excellent color and the finish is superb! The only reason for the nearly perfect review is that although the lacquer finish is beautiful it chips very easily. I had a few pieces with minor chips just from transport. This is no fault of RCM as they packaged very well, but maybe they need to find a way to make paint more durable. Overall highly recommend!! Thanks RCM!!!
