Dal Negro

In 1756, in the river-kissed town of Treviso, Italy, an Austrian family built a tiny workshop to produce playing cards. In 1928, the Dal Negro family purchased a small factory to broaden their gaming gamut. Soon their goods included decks, boards, and poker sets, all constructed meticulously with superior materials. As technological advances swept the manufacturing industry, Dal Negro took the helm, producing progressive games that still upheld the detail-oriented, classical traditions attributed to European makers. Dal Negro now stands as a historic pillar of luxury games, as one shuffle, move, or glance will confirm. Whether beneath the ruins of the Maya in Belize or on the patio of your beach house in Bangladesh, Dal Negro is at home anywhere you play.

What is a Staunton chess set?

In 1849 a universal design for chess pieces was created by Howard Staunton, resulting in the familiar figures still in use today. Tournament chess sets will utilize variations of this design.

Serious play or serious style?

For competitive play, look for a Staunton set with properly weighted pieces, in black and white, and with minimal distractions. For display sets or casual play let your imagination run wild.

"Chess problems demand from the composer the same virtues that characterize all worthwhile art: originality, invention, conciseness, harmony, complexity, and splendid insincerity."

Vladimir Nabokov, "Poems and Problems", 1969
