The beautiful design of the Atlantic series takes on a new dimension with these red and cream lacquered chess men.
Red and cream is a colour scheme that can be expensive to achieve, particularly in high-quality lacquer. The same is true for these Atlantic pieces, but here at Regency Chess we wanted to make them affordable, particularly as similar chess pieces on the market can sell for more than £300.
The popularity of art chess pieces has grown hugely in the last decade, although few are made as well as our Atlantic Series Staunton Red & Cream Lacquered 3.75 inches. Sometimes art manufacturers can ignore the practical needs of a chess piece, creating a beautiful yet brittle product.
Recognising this, we concentrated our efforts on building a set of art chess pieces that will stand the test of time, as well as the discerning eye of a critic.
Under the lacquer is fine graded boxwood, exactly the same as the natural wooden version. Expertly lacquered and then polished to a high gloss, these chessmen are then double weighted before a thick layer of protective felt is added to the bottom.
As a result, for less than £100, a remarkable set of art chess pieces is ready to be shipped to UK customers in less than 48 hours.
The king has a base diameter of 1.6 inches (41 mm)which means these coloured chess pieces will sit perfectly on any of our 20 inch (50 cm) chess boards.
Why not try them on the similarly spectacular Lacquered Red Erable Luxury Chess Board.
