Staunton Castle proudly present their very latest, carefully researched and precisely carved reproduction – The Nathaniel Cooke 1849 Set
This set is meticulously handcrafted to accurately reproduce the design of the original Staunton pattern chessmen, registered by Nathaniel Cooke in March of 1849 and first manufactured by Jaques of London in September 1849. This particular design is the first Staunton set, which has become the most popular pattern for chessmen. Nathaniel Cooke registered his design at the UK Patent Office on 1 March 1849. As he was the editor of The Illustrated London News, the newspaper where Howard Staunton wrote a regular chess column, he asked Staunton to advertise his chess set. Staunton did so in his column on 8 September 1849, and the chess set became famous under the name of Staunton.
