A resizing of the signature Regency Chess Oranaments in solid ebony.
The 3.75 inch king is hand turned from a single piece of wood before being expertly finished. Each individual Bath Series chess piece is meticulously carved to create the famous Staunton lines. Within the parameters of this classic chess piece design, our partner craftsmen have created ornaments of the highest calibre. The knights, for example, are astonishing in their detail.
Upon their necks sits a mane of hair, with each intricately carved strand visible. The finesse of these chessmen is equalled only by their full-bodied nature. When a chess player, an artist or collector holds these ebony chess pieces there is an instant sense of quality, of an adherence to excellence seldom found elsewhere; ornaments created by experts, to be appreciated by the connoisseur, to be kept for generations. The Bath Series is an investment in craftsmanship and material, with the highest grade ebony wood shaped into extraordinary beauty.
At Regency Chess that is what we hold as luxury, a combination of beauty and exclusivity. Buyers can also rest assured that all the ebony used to create this luxury set of chessmen is sourced ethically. Although we strive for the finest products in our luxury section we refuse to stock any materials that have been illegally sourced.
These Bath Series chessmen will fit on any board of 20 inches (50 cm) or more
