The Constantine Series is a testament to the aspirations of its craftsmen to achieve nothing less than perfection.
The king, an impressive 92g in weight, boasts a silhouette inspired by the ancient architecture of the Mughals, with a rounded top supporting a decorative spire. Next to his 4.5 inch frame is a queen chosen for her elegant, Moor-inspired headdress. Their differing styles, expressive and graceful, complement each other perfectly in this superior set.
The Constantine knight is one of the most detailed pieces in the entire Regency Collection, with a long, firebrand mane and a flick of hair covering one eye. It takes remarkable craftsmanship to achieve consistent perfection in the knight pieces and each one in the set will have been made by a single master carver.
Adding to the exceptional quality of the set is the solid ebony wood from which it is fashioned and polished to preserve the beauty and longevity of each exquisite piece.
To accommodate the Constantine Series chessmen a board of at least 21 inches will be required.
