Marilyn Jackson

When you are ready to invest in an heirloom chess set for you and your family, Elizabeth Gann is the specialty dealer to see. Chess-lover Gann offers antique chess sets from acknowledged master artisans as well as unusual, finely crafted modern sets destined to become heirlooms.

 

Among the latter are Piero Benzoni’s Renaissance set with onyx board, his Napoléon set in bronze highlighted with gold, and his Egyptian set. Gann is also the representative for the House of Staunton Collector Series chess sets, which replicate the designs of the renowned original Staunton chess sets. If nothing in stock catches your fancy, you can commission a custom-made set or board through Gann.
