The Regency Chess Company Reviews:

Lovely quality set, nicely made with classic weighted pieces. Arrived really promptly and was well packaged. Husband was very happy!

Google ReviewJessica IsaacsReviewed 29/09/2023

We ordered a travel chess set for our Grandson's birthday present to be sent direct to him. We were kept informed of delivery progress and it arrived - as hoped - the day before his birthday. Apparently it is as good as it appeared on the website and he is absolutely thrilled with it.

Many thanks - our replacement knight arrived on Thursday. We are so impressed with your service. We have made a donation to Refugee and Migrant Network Sutton - a brilliant local charity making people welcome in our community.

Product Description

Great value chess set that doesn't compromise on quality. Includes our 3 inch king Down Head chess pieces, also known as German Knight chessmen, finished from solid natural boxwood and ebonised boxwood. They are hand finished with a natural waxes, are weighted and have green felted bases.

They sit proudly on our 16 inch European chess board, a combination of veneered rich mahogany and maple. We have included our polished stained birchwood chessmen box to stow the pieces when not in play. The robust hardwoods and expert craftsmanship mean this set will last for years of enduring chess games.

Buying this set as a bundle represents superb value for money and a significant saving when compared to buying all three products separately.

Note: this chess set now includes a Dark Stained Chess Box

Please note that when the chessmen are placed in the box it is normal and intentional for them to lay down on top of each other. They are NOT intended to stand up inside the box.

The chess board in this set has been expertly crafted by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain using precision laser cutting techniques and stunning wooden veneers combined with expert lacquering and finishing. The underside of the board is finished in a satin veneer that is a different colour from the playing surface of the board. The veneers used for the underside may vary in colour from batch to batch.

B Draper, 26th December 2015

"Very pleased with this, the figures are a good weight and beautifully carved and finished. Very attractive board as well. Amazing service - arrived the day after I ordered it, and that was the free postage option! Highly recommend."

V Dunne, 28th March 2014

"As pleased with the product as I am with the service. The FREE delivery only took two days. I was sent the wrong board (without notation)and when I asked to swap for the right one they sent it as quickly as the first and told me I could keep the other one. On top of this even though the product is in their value range it is still of excellent quality. The pieces are flawless and are weighted perfectly, making them very pleasing to hold and play with. The dark stained box is a welcome addition, much better than the previous unstained one. Considering all of this I think that the price (£54.84 at time of writing) is wonderfully reasonable indeed. Being able to pay via PayPal was yet another much appreciated aspect of an overall very pleasing experience. I would definitely buy from them again and I would recommend this chess set to anyone because of its fantastic quality and great value."
