There is a carpentry team in Florence, Italy, that makes these Artisan Chess Boards for the Regency Chess Company.
Solid, Florentine Oak
They work for a company called Italfama, known for an adherence to the stoic values of quality craftsmanship.
The process begins with a selection process for which cuts of Oak to use, with the unwanted logs then sent further south into Tuscany, to be used for chianti barrels.
In Florence the oak is then treated and the detail carefully added, creating a beautiful playing surface for chess players and art lovers alike. This Italian chessboard is, after all, an ornamental piece as much as a board game.
When put with the San Severeo Chess Pieces it becomes one of the components of the extraordinary luxury The San Severeo Chess Set.
This board will actually accommodate Kings of up to 3.75 inches tall and is a fantastic match with other metal or wooden chess pieces.
Decadent Engravings on a Robust Oak Frame
One of the reasons it is so adaptable is because of the dark blue coloration of the playing squares, which compliment the engraved border that flanks all sides.
This opulently decorated border supports the entire board on four legs that come fortified with protective pads.
Unlike many of the products available in today’s market, this Artisan Chess Set, like all of the Regency Chess Products, is built to last.
Its mix of decadent engravings upon a robust oak frame is why this board is quickly becoming one of Regency Chess’s most popular luxury chessboards.
