Classic Staunton rosewood chess pieces paired with a superb Italian board in dark walnut.
The reddish tones of our Classic Staunton Rosewood Bath Series Chess Men 4.25 Inches beautifully complement the natural walnut patterning of the luxury Italian chessboard we have matched it with. These two luxury components perfectly make up the Classic Staunton Rosewood & Dark Walnut Bath Series Grand Chess.
Every ornament in this luxury set of chess pieces is hand carved, with the knights given particular attention. All four horses have amazingly detailed faces and intricate, sweeping manes.
At 4.25 inches (107 mm) though, it is the king that holds the most attention within Regency Chess’s marque set. He stands with as much authority as any regent in the Regency Chess Collection, although, aesthetically, he is perhaps the most striking. His urned top is the foundation for an elegant coiled spire, while his thick midriff is simply a larger, stronger incarnation of his subjects’.
Regardless of rank all of the hand-turned pieces share the same battlefield, which takes the shape of a stunning 23.6 inch (60 cm) dark walnut chess board. Made in Florence, Italy by the craftsmen of Italfama, this distinguished chess board is one of two that has the beauty to compete with the Bath chessmen. The other being its lighter, briarwood sister. Our product team here in Somerset believe that these rosewood pieces, in particular, are best suited to a darker board.
Purchasing this extraordinary luxury chess set is as much an investment as anything else, with the cost of these rare materials only likely to increase in the future. To have the Classic Staunton Rosewood & Dark Walnut Bath Series Grand Chess is to possess one of the finest luxury chess sets in the world. It really is that simple.
