The Garvi Luxury Rosewood and Walnut Grand Chess Set is a significant combination of two of the most extraordinary chess products in the Regency Chess Collection.

Exceptional rosewood chessmen

The chess pieces, first of all, are breathtaking, quite literally, in their size and intricacy of design. There have been few other occasions in the history of this company when the knight piece has drawn so much attention. To create such an outstanding chess piece from solid rosewood is a triumph of craftsmanship. The same can be said for the other 28 ornaments in this group. Inspired by Mughal architecture on the Indian sub-continent and named after the Hindi word for 'proud,' these luxury chess pieces presented a challenge to us, primarily because we didn't know what kind of board could best accommodate them. Thankfully, early in 2014, our long-standing partners at Italfama in Florence delivered the perfect match for the Garvi Series Chessmen.

A unique Italian chess board

The Dark Walnut Burl Luxury Italian Chess Board has deep, natural rivers of wood grain that complement the chess pieces upon it wonderfully. Like the pieces, this chess board is handmade by a team of craftsmen who spend weeks creating each one. As far as we're concerned here at Regency Chess, the workshops at ITALFAMA produce the best chess boards in the world. Once both components are carefully finished they are sent over to us here in Frome, Somerset. From there our product team prepares the Garvi Luxury Rosewood and Walnut Grand Chess Set for shipping to anywhere in the world.
