This is a classic Polish chess set with a ornate burned and stained board. It contains the Staunton No.4 chess pieces which are single weighted. A heavy, solid and robust board that will provide years or decades of use. There is a real charm to this set, with a classic European design and the classic Staunton pieces, it's a perfect combination of board and pieces.
The entire set has been hand crafted in Poland and imported to the UK by Regency Chess. Superb value for money for a high quality set that has been made in Europe

A lovely chess set to own. Very high qaulity, and lovely to play with. Regency chess should also be commended for their fantastic service. I ordered this set the eve of Christmas eve and recieved it christmas eve. I wish more companies would operate in the same fashion. Thank you from a very happy customer.

Genuinely good quality chess pieces. Whoever designed this has got the taste! Very refinely crafted and about the right weight. I searched many sites but to settle for this good value set, even better deal after 15% discount.
It took about 2 weeks to reach China (i know it's far!) and the Royal Mail airmail postage is bit hefty too (cost me nearly 20 pound!). I wonder if there is any cheaper and perhaps a bit quicker way to reach this part of the world?
The whole set has strong smell of glu which I suppose is not healthy, but I hope by soaking them up in the sun it'd get better. In general, I love this set.
