When Nathaniel Cooke filed for design number 58,607 on March 1st, 1849, "an ornamental design for a set of chess-men" under the British Ornamental Designs Act of 1842, the iconic Staunton Chessmen were officially born. The rights to produce these exquisite chess pieces were then granted to the renowned wood and ivory turners, John Jacques of London, a company that has been in operation since 1795 and continues to thrive to this day.

Immerse yourself in the world of luxury chess with the exquisite JJ Cooke Edition Ebony and Montgoy Chess Set. The refined "Cooke" design, first introduced in the Staunton collection, is expertly crafted by skilled artisans using high-quality ebony and boxwood. Each piece is meticulously handcrafted, with attention to detail and precise weight for perfect balance. Indulge in the rich sensory experience as the billiard cloth base protects your board.

Indulge in the exquisite beauty of this Ebony and Montgoy Luxury Chess Set, masterfully crafted with the finest ebony and antiqued boxwood. Its elegant design not only makes it a coveted acquisition, but also a valuable investment and cherished heirloom for generations to come. Combine it with the grandeur of the largest chessboard we offer, the Montgoy Palisander from Spain, handcrafted with Montgoy palisander and maple veneers by the renowned Rechapados Ferrer. Every detail, from the king's towering height and broad base to the board's quality wooden veneer base, exudes sophistication and exclusivity.

In crafting these chessboards, we employ modern techniques to achieve clean lines and meticulous attention to detail. The rosewood we use boasts rich shades of dark red and brown, with an elegant grain that complements the lighter maple squares and pairs flawlessly with the ebony chessmen.
