Chess is known as much for its stunning and intricate pieces as for its strategy and tactics. Even if they don't play or don't know how, many people have a polished wooden set in their homes. Even though the Staunton pattern has been the standard chess set for international competitions for the last 150 years, there were many other traditional styles of chess pieces used before the Staunton set became the standard, from the elegant Northern Upright pieces to the famous characters of the Isle of Lewis chess set. This article is a guide to the different brands of chess pieces and what to look out for when buying a chess set for everyday use.
