Product Description


!!! IMPORTANT: Sadly the white lacquer on some of the white pieces has started to turn a slight yellowish colour in certain spots (quite likely as a result of a slightly defective lacquer). Therefore, we have heavily discounted this product in order to clear our stock of them. !!!

  • Fine boxwood.
  • Expert high gloss finish.
  • Weighted and felted.
  • 3.75 inch (95 mm) king.
  • Perfect with a 20 inch (50 cm) board.
  • Pieces made in England.
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.

Product Reviews

"Love them! Don't even notice they're defective at all. They feel good to handle and look fantastic. Very, very happy with them!!"

"very nice!"

K , 12th April 2021

"Great value for the reduced amount paid. With my set, the “white” pieces are not noticeably “defective” but a consistent green tinge of white. The red pieces are pillar box red and therefore brighter than the ones in the photos here, but that too is no problem for me. They are nicely weighted and the only sign of quality control problems is that a number of the white pawns have small marks in the lacquer at their tops which is probably the result of a machine gripping the pieces during manufacture. Overall, very pleased I bought this set as a second/everyday set."

C , 10th March 2021

"Excellent value for a well made and nicely finished set of chessmen. Very pleased with the pieces and the service - ordered one day, delivered the next."
