During the first half of the 19th century, a surge in the global popularity of chess brought about the demand for a uniform model of chess pieces. While the variety and styles of chess pieces that were in use at the time were extensive, they were decorative in nature and considered unsuitable for play. It is important to remember that chess has historically been enjoyed by the wealthy, a fact that is reflected in the artistic designs of chess sets that dominated the marketplace. While aesthetically beautiful, the chess pieces of the period were not very practical. The chess pieces were expensive to produce, cumbersome to use, prone to tipping over and had such ornate details that they were unable to withstand the wear and tear of regular use. However the greatest disadvantage of these chess sets was the lack of uniformity of the pieces within a chess set – a player’s unfamiliarity with a particular chess set could affect the outcome of the game. Complaints such as these led to the search for a standard design of chess pieces. On September 1, 1849, #58607 – An Ornamental Design for a Set of Chess-Men was registered by Mr. Nathaniel Cooke under the British Ornamental Designs Act of 1842.

Hunched over the table, brows furrowed, timer ticking, two fervently calculating minds compete over a handsome, hand-made chess set that befits the Game of Kings. Chess boards can be as designed with as much care and scrutiny as a strategy for the game itself or it can adhere to standard, traditional shapes and styles.

The wide inventory on eBay is home to chess sets for every occasion including: tournament style, travel-size, gorgeous decorative sets, novelty, and more. Shoppers can choose from hand-carved exotic wood or lightweight plastic Staunton designs. Shoppers should also bear in mind that a tournament chess set is relatively large, as tournament rules dictate the board must have squares and a king that is approximately four inches tall. A slightly smaller set may be less reminiscent of the boards over which Garry Kasparov vanquished opponent after opponent in numerous world championships, but it may better fit your coffee table.
