The largest King in the Regency Chess Collection sits on top of this commemorative Chess Set, remembering the 2014 Fide World Championship match in Sochi, Russia.
Magnus Carlsen cemented his place at the top of the Chess world in the aforementioned match, beating Vishy Anand and securing World Championship status for at least another two years.
In honour of that feat we have created an imposing, ornate chess set that boasts incredible detail alongside impressive weight. There is no doubt that the solid ebony pieces loom large over their equivalents in other sets, which is why we have placed them on a chessboard that equals them in grandeur.
Hand made in Spain from palisander and maple, this 23.6 inch playing surface is among the finest we have here at Regency chess. Its deep red grain comes from gorgeous palisander rosewood, while a thin border of Ebony perfectly compliments the Sochi 2014 Chess Pieces placed upon it.
Those pieces have all been hand turned masterfully to create ornaments that hold a certain elegance, with corseted midriffs and a unique, waved form.
This Commemorative Chess Set marks the significant moment when Magnus Carlsen confirmed his status as one of the greats.
