Another masterpiece from the Maestro! As with all of our Chessmen, the Renegade Series Chess Set exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality.

The design, quality and craftsmanship of this set is UNMATCHED by any set of Chessmen in its price range. Nothing even comes close! The Chessmen are new and each set consists of 34 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton over 10 years ago.

      History of the Chess Pieces

      With the introduction of the original Staunton Chessmen, which were first registered by Nathaniel Cook and produced by Jaques of London in 1849, it become an accepted standard that the Knight should be taller than the Rook.

      With the exception of the Rook, the height of the individual Chessmen is an accurate reflection of its relative value. The King, the most valuable piece on the chess board is also the tallest. Likewise the Queen, the second most valuable piece on the Chess board is the second tallest. The minor pieces, the Bishop and the Knight, are widely considered to be roughly equal in value and are approximately the same height, with theBishop being slightly taller in deference to its superior mobility. The Pawn, the least valuable is also the shortest. The House of Staunton asks 'Why is the Rook, one of the major pieces and one of the most valuable(5) significantly shorter than both the less valuable Bishop and Knight?'

      With the introduction of the Renegade Luxury Series Chessmen, we have thrown out standard convention and have returned the Rook to its rightful stature, towering over both the Bishop and Knight.
