24 carat gold plating, 990 silver plating and solid oak are the three primary materials used to create the San Severeo Chess Pieces.
The craftsmen in Florence at the prestigious Italfama workshop screw each top piece into its matching base through an inch of solid oak. Subsequently, these metal chessmen are extremely solid and durable, characteristics enhanced greatly thanks to gold and silver plating.
Before they are assembled, the San Severeo Chess Pieces are cast in unique moulds to which Italfama hold exclusive rights.
Once they are ready each component is finished with precious metals and solid oak, ready to be shipped over from Italy to the Regency Chess headquarters in Frome, Somerset.
When they arrive we either sell them on their own or with this stunning, Artisan, Italian Oak Chessboard.
Although these beautiful chess pieces are unique they still adhere to the classic Staunton chess shape. The knight, bishop and rook are all easily identifiable despite their artisan nature.
The kings are 3.75 inches (95 mm) tall and have a base diameter of 1.2 inches (30 mm), which makes them suitable for boards as small as 17 inches (43 cm).
