Product Description

  • Crafted in Somerset, England.
  • Atmospheric Victorian-inspired designs.
  • Striking 4 inch King.
  • Solid crushed stone resin pieces.
  • Unique metallic finish.
  • Weighty and well-balanced.
Stunningly unique with a sophisticated design, these Victorian-inspired chess pieces are UK-made and crafted from fine stone resin with the utmost care and attention to detail.

The 19th century is undoubtedly known as the era of Queen Victoria. Britain’s longest-ruling sovereign (she held the throne from 1837 until her death in January 1901). Over the course of the 19th century, the Victorian era transformed the island nation of Britain from an agricultural country into a global industrial leader and innovator. Its naval empire expanded to every corner of the world, and the development of railways and canal networks greatly improved transport at home. Huge developments in the fields of science and medicine defined the era as one of enlightenment, and the Victorian era represents a renaissance that catapulted Britain into the 20th century and beyond.

This uniquely atmospheric set of pieces are inspired by the timeless designs of 19th century playing cards. These whimsical designs perfectly capture the style and atmosphere of the Victorian era, and will look perfect seated on a 17-18 inch board.

Product Reviews

"We have placed the order online on Monday, and by Friday (of the same week), the order has reached us. From the opposite side of Europe (from UK to Romania) in 5 days. A very pleasant surprise indeed! Our chess board is exquisite and elegant, and arrived well-packed, no scratches, no damage. The chess set is a design beauty in and of itself. For three days in a row now, we are playing chess in our family and it brings us a lot of joy. So, all in all, excellent service, high quality products, highly recommended!"
