Individually hand carved from beautiful rosewood, the Concentric Ball Chess Pieces are quite possibly the finest ornate chess men in the Regency Collection. With their spherical centre feature, these pieces are aesthetically unique however to make them all instantly recognisable, on top of the ball stands a smaller version of the traditional Staunton designs.

The pawns are distinctly different with their layered, beehive tops. Because of the hand carving technique used, every pawn is noticeably different from its other front row peers. At 4 inches (102 mm), twice the size of the pawns, the king has a base diameter of 1.2 inches (30 mm) with both royals having large crowns, declaring their superiority and giving them a satisfying playing weight.

The 17.75 inch Montgoy Palisander (Rosewood) and Maple chess seems to have been made specially for these pieces, it complements them so well. Rechapados Ferrer use modern fabrication techniques to ensure perfectly aligned veneers with the rich grain of the Rosewood being complemented by the the light maple colour.
