An Ebony border frames the Gambit Chessmen sitting on top of this Deluxe Maple Chessboard.
It’s thin dark line compliments the rich pieces brilliantly, creating an Ornate Chess Set of the highest order.
When the pieces are taken off this Spanish chessboard they sit upon green felt in a solid Sheesham box.
At Regency Chess we used to use clasps to hold our boxes shut, but in a redesign last year we decided to upgrade them with hard-wearing magnets. The result is a chess box that will last as long as the solid ebony pieces it holds.
The Gambit Series Chess Pieces in this particular set are hand turned in Amritsar, India, by a team of expert craftsmen. Many of whom we met on a recent visit to the subcontinent.
The uniqueness of these chessmen really grabbed our attention, with a robust bishop, nimble knight and flared rook all catching the eye.
Ornamental, Heavy Chessmen
Even the pawns, boasting excellently turned bases, are ornamental in their design.
The distinguishing feature of this chess set, despite its beauty, is most certainly the price. To have such carved detail, plus an outstanding chess board and durable box, is not something that can be expected for less than £200.
However with the Gambit Walnut Chess Set we are happy to offer just that.
Incredible value for money for a chess set that will last for generations.
