“Created to commemorate the legendary Hastings 1895 Tournament, it combines the form, broad bases, board presence and exquisite craftsmanship of the time period with a masterful Knight designed by the Maestro, Frank A. Camaratta, Jr.”
The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Hastings Series Chess set. This full tournament-sized Plastic Chess set features a 3.875″ King with a 1.75″ diameter base. The Chess pieces are very heavily weighted with felt base pads on the undersides of the Chessmen.
The design of the Hastings Series Chess set combined the form, broad bases, board presence and craftsmanship of the Staunton Pattern Chess sets of the time period with an original Knight that was designed by the Maestro, Frank A. Camaratta, Jr.
The Knight design reflects the adage that Chess is War, resulting in a truly ferocious beast ready to do battle on the Chessboard. The Knight has attitude and is one of the Maestro’s proudest creations.We currently ship equipment only to addresses within the United States and Canada
