Product Description

Staunton Chess Set with a very traditional look, superb quality and complete with a luxury storage box.

  • Competition Staunton.
  • Luxurious detailed pieces.
  • 3.75 inch (95 mm) king.
  • Weighted for perfect balance.
  • Bases covered with billiard cloth.
  • 21 inch (53 cm) mahogany and maple board.
  • Complete with solid sheesham storage box.
Luxury Competition Staunton Chess pieces, crafted from solid boxwood and ebonised boxwood. The attention to detail is staggering. The knights feature distinctive, aggressive features with a well defined mane and flared nostrils. Beautifully weighted and balanced, the pieces are presented in a hand made solid sheesham chess piece case which is lined inside with green flock. Polished with natural waxes, the case is a work of art on its own!

The chess board is moderately large at 21 inches square. Made from sustainable mahogany and maple in Europe, it provides the perfect platform to display these wonderful chessmen. Classic Staunton from start to finish, this chess set includes everything one needs and represents outstanding value for money considering the level of finish and beauty.

We have sourced the various parts for this chess set from two key chess suppliers. Firstly the board, this comes from the worlds largest, and arguably the best, producer of chess boards in Spain, Rechapados Ferrer. We opted for the Spanish version over and above the cheaper Polish one to ensure that this set maintains the highest precision and quality. The pieces and box come from one of our favourite producers of high quality chessmen. A classic Staunton set, nicely weighted and very solid. They are the perfect complement for the mahogany chess board.

Please note that the box included in this lovely set is now supplied with the new and improved hidden magnetic closing mechanism and not with the brass clasps as seen. It is also supplied without the divider.

"A beautiful set"

S Dobson, 19th May 2020

"Good quality product, my husband loved his present"

M Goodwin, 29th April 2020

"Very nice set, looks and feels high quality. Board is surprisingly light given the size of it but still feels very sturdy."

P , 18th April 2020

"Excellent chess set. I was surprised by the huge footprint of the board, 54cm sides mean 76cm (30 inches) diameter which is quite hefty. The board was flawless with excellent satin finish, no exotic woods but very nice quality. The pieces are heavy and beautiful, especially the knights and kings have heft to them. Finishing of the pieces is good, but at this price point there are some tool marks and roughness visible when looking closely. Details are lovely for the price point and the set is a superb value, beautiful without being too much of an art piece to prevent playing."

J Pihlajamaa, 5th February 2020

"With this product I found it of excellent quality and very reasonable for the money. The boxwood used to create the pieces really feels very striking and these pieces have some nice weight to them. The details in each piece showcase the consistency of the craftsmanship gone in. The board made of maple and mahogany I believe is perfect for me, easy on the eye with the tones and at a very good size. The box is also something worth mentioning as it's just something to behold. Very happy customer. James"

J Ovens, 28th December 2019

"Great value for money, love this set."

V , 30th December 2018

"The set is quite big but is really beautiful and very nicely balanced. I am very happy with my choice."

K Kuzminski, 27th December 2018

"delighted with my purchase. Paula from eh company was a great help with my queries."

C Keating, 13th August 2018

"I bought this set because of the discount but when it was delivered I fell in love with it immediately. The pieces feel so luxorious to handle and they are substantial both in size and weight too. I am very glad I bought the set which arrived promptly and well packaged. One item to note, if you do buy this set make sure you have enough room for the board which is bigger than you may think. Otherwise, if you are looking for a tournament size set this represents great value and you will not be disappointed."

P Bowen, 8th March 2016

"Just brilliant! High quality chess set & board at a good price with courteous and prompt delivery - couldn\'t ask for more. Thank you. Regency Chess come highly recommended."

M Perry, 2nd March 2016

"I purchased this as I wanted a chess set that would last me many years. We opening the boxes the quality and finish of each piece is exceptional. The board is nicely matched to the pieces and again superb quality. I couldn\'t recommend this set highly enough for the price."
