    If you are interested in beautiful Staunton Chess Sets visit: chessstore.com or house of staunton. This sets are very expensive but for me it worth every penny

    My Video about my staunton set watch here :): Video

    I hope you enjoy this set, so I do.

    I just recently bought a travel-chess set and I already managed to have one of the pieces missing. It's the black rook. So if anyone finds a small black rook, it possibly is the one I'm missing. 8[

    I just bought a set from USCF.  It arrived 3 days ago and I love it.  There were no problems, I received everything when I was supposed to, etc.

    I have added three sets this year to my collection from thechesspiece.com;   preferred for the styles and quality workmanship.  I have game on right now with my latest.

    Not sure what the reference to google is about. I have bought sets from House of Staunton and a very hard to find Haida Gwai-inspired set from a Native American gift shop; it can be difficult to source reputable sellers and certainly more difficult than clever web searches.

    This is the same as DGT Venus set which is what I chose to accompany my DGT board. I later ordered the DGT Ebony pieces since they are of a more standard Staunton pattern. I really like them both.

    just a recommendation (which i chose) 

    CHESS SETS WITH MACASSAR EBONY & MAPLE CHESS BOARD IN COMBINATION WITH GERMAN FIERCE KNIGHT CHESS PIECES. NICE COMBO! and not too expensive.

      I agree that uscf is a good way to go. I think the roll up board in either blue or green with the staunton (i prefer weighted) pieces are the way to go. You might also consider a clock and a bag.(Make sure the bag is big enough i once got one that was too small for my board!)

    If you live outside the US, it will cost you an extra penny to order anything from there. So I suggest you try shops in Europe, including German and UK Ebay sites. A decent standard set (with two queens of each colour) costs a bit. The cheaper ones will develop problems (hinges, colour, piece pads coming off etc.) soon enough. Don't buy fancy sets, buy a classic chess set.

    Late to the party, but hopefully this helps a few people. There is a nice site dedicated to cool chess sets, here it is. http://coolchesssets.net/

    It's worth noting that uscfsales.com is simply a House of Staunton site dressed up in USCF banners. That's not to say that it's not recommended, just that you'll get the same stuff sold by the same folks at ether uscfsales.com or houseofstaunton.com. However, I'm sure that the U.S. Chess Federation gets a little kickback if you order through the USCF Sales site (if you care about that).
