Lessing Series (1927-37) are 17th and the last of recognized variants of staunton pattern chess pieces.
Our design is a precise reproduction of the last officially recognized design launched by Jacques of London. As with the originals, this set has been traditionally weighted using lead infused at the base of the chess pieces.
The set has been masterfully crafted in Genuine Ebony Wood and Boxwood with skilled artisanal work done on the knights.
This design confirms well to the traditional staunton pattern with no sharp edges or delicate carvings. The sturdy design of the pieces make it a joy to hold and play with.
