The Regency Chess Company are delighted with this addition to its comprehensive range of chess sets. Whilst a miniature version of the Isle of Lewis Chessmen, these pieces still maintain all the detail enjoyed in the larger sets.
The draught counters are made from the same crushed stone resin and are a perfect size, weight and feel. Visually, the light pieces marked with a mythical mermaid and the dark pieces with a traditional Celtic knot design. There are two convenient black velour drawstring bags to store the stones when they are not in use. These bags also store the chess pawns but are big enough to also accommodate the chess pieces at the same time so making it a convenient set to travel with (without the presentation box).
The playing area itself is just under 10.5 inches with a traditional Celtic design around the border, making the overall size of this linen board 12.5 inches. The 1.25 inch playing squares are in matching cream and brown and complement the pieces and stones perfectly. It rolls up and sits in its own compartment when not in use.
With its superb blue and silver branded presentation box and overall design, this set would make a wonderful gift for any chess and/or draughts enthusiast.
