The Sentinel Series Chessmen in ebony represent classic Staunton at its finest. Supplied to us by the world's premier producers of wooden chessmen, there has been no compromise in the quality and finish of this set, crafted from clean graded boxwood and black ebony wood and weighted to create just the right amount of balance. The uniformity among the pieces is superb. All four of the knights are incredibly closely matched, each one having been carved by the same human hands. The level of detail on the knights is also exemplary, with plenty of classic vintage character.
The superb quality of the finish on the chessmen has been achieved by a lengthy polishing process resulting in the most amazing natural sheen. These sets are made in very limited numbers and represent a superb investment that will appreciate in value heavily as ebony wood continues to rise sharply in price. Each set comes numbered and with a document to support its authenticity as a genuine Regency Chess Company product. They will sit perfectly on a 23 inch (60 cm) chess board.
This luxury set includes 4 queens
