The Sandringham Series Red Sandalwood chess pieces represent classic Staunton at its very best. These chessmen have come from the world's top producers of luxury chess pieces and have been made without compromise from the finest red sandalwood and clean graded boxwood. Each piece has just the right amount of weighting in the base to allow perfect balance, something that can be truly appreciated when you begin to move the chessmen around the board. The level of detail in the knights is superb; they retain a classic Staunton pattern and the uniformity among all four knights is as good as it gets.
The quality of the finish on the chess pieces has been achieved by a lengthy polishing process that allows the close dense grains of the wood to shine through naturally, allowing for the most intense detail and sharpness to be retained on every piece. The red sandalwood used for the dark chess pieces has been carefully selected for its grain and colour. The uniformity of the tones throughout the set is breathtaking. These sets are produced in tiny numbers, usually just five at a time, and each one comes certified and numbered as a genuine Regency Chess Company product. An investment grade heirloom set that will appreciate heavily in value as sandalwood continues to rise in price.
This luxury set includes 4 queens
