Comment on Whats the Appeal of a Theme Chess Set? by Why Consider a Theme Chess Set? | Articles Studio

[…] The attraction is partly about oneupmanship. The theme set owner sits smugly in the knowledge that his choice says something about him or her that is that much more cranially higher than the purchaser of a china tea set. We could get into some detail about this – maybe a purchaser is obsesssed with the need to feel superior. But with a finely detailed chess set based on the War of Independence or the American Civil War instead of the Ming Replica Vase – I’m not so sure – I think I’d feel that bit better too. So much to show off, so much to talk about and talk around. No, no – we must recoil from the idea! Superiority is not the motivation – ‘we’re all equal in HIS eyes’…, although perhaps more equality could be gained by a discerning, insightful selection in our lives here and there… perhaps through a chess set – couldn’t it? Maybe? […]




Comment on Chess Retailing and Buying from a Third World Country by Which Chess Design and from where?   | chess set

[…] It’s no secret that most fine chess sets are made in a small region of India in The Punjab state. Well, if it was a secret, there we are, the genie is out of the box – no secret anymore. Other areas make sets too – Poland, Pakistan and of course China – but objectively, everyone recognizes the superiority of Indian made chess sets – often described with a touch of melodrama as chess sets with soul. As the largest chess retailer in Europe and growing quickly in North America, we at ChessBaron haven’t yet seen chess designs made outside of the Punjab that have the presence and chess quality of a set originating in India. Not that they don’t have quality issues – as this chess quality blog entry shows – they certainly do and need to overcome them to integrate fully with the richer ‘West’. But they are the best available chess sets in the world.All of them? But what about Jaques? Surely this is a fine English design. They’d like you to think so. It really could have a ‘Made in The Punjab’ label – because it is. The same sets that are sold in many chess outlets are the same as Jaques and are sold for a fraction of the price. They just can’t call it Jaques – but it’s the same model. Jaques has become kinda passe. The design of so many other staunton sets are beter quality, better design and much more beautiful to the eye. Small tweaks to the pawns, a little ingenuity to the queen, a splash of artistic licence to the knight with a glorious mane and facial expression brings a chess set that is majestic and wonderful, excellent quality and fit for a family heirloom. Hence the saying – ‘You never really own a ChessBaron, you merely look after it for the next generation’. These are the new style of chess sets that will be coming up in antique roadshows of the future as the style of sets that supplanted Jaques as the predominant chess style.Where are the differences? The knight steals the applause, takes the limelite and acts like the Prima Donna. The Queen might be the most powerful piece – but ‘she doesn’t turn heads any more’. It’s not that she has become less of a dignified beautiful lady, it’s more that the Johnny-come-lately Knight has been dressed to impress – and impress it does. Once you’ve finished gazing at the wonderous detail of the knight, stop though and examine the two least likely pieces of the sets to really see the enduring quality of a chess set. The pawn and the rook. The classical, slightly innovative lines of these two siblings are the real labels of a set that will endure through generations just like the Jaques used to. They should have stature and presence with a little superior attitude, knowing that their stable is thoroughbread! […]
