The beauty and majesty of Elizabethan England is brought to life with this stunning chess set, lovingly crafted in the UK. The set comes complete with a Spanish-made 23.6 Inch Montgoy Palisander and Maple Deluxe Chess Board.

The long reign of Queen Elizabeth The First was a time of economic growth, empirical expansion and incredible optimism for England. Elizabeth, or ‘The Virgin Queen’ (as she was known for her refusal to dilute her authority through marriage), led England into a new renaissance associated inextricably with William Shakespeare, Sir Walter Raleigh’s voyages of discovery to America and Sir Francis Drake’s crushing of the fearsome Spanish Armada.

The intricate pieces are cast from heavy crushed stone resin and finished with an elegant Cardinal Red and Palisander Cream colouring.
