The Regency Chess Company Reviews:

Beautiful board and great customer service. The WhatsApp feature on the website is great for making sure everything is right with the order.

Google ReviewTom KenyonReviewed 23/10/2023

I needed to make a speedy order, so I contacted The Regency Chess Company and they made sure they looked out for my name/order and got it sent off that same afternoon. When they noted an item I had ordered was out of stock they upgraded me to ensure we got the order in time. Super great service and so helpful they were on WhatsApp too - just really lovely to deal with. Thank you so much again!

Handcrafted in high-quality graded ebony and boxwood in the world-famous and classic Staunton design, these JJ Cooke Reproduction Staunton Chessmen are exquisitely detailed and superbly finished.

Created by the same chess workshop that produces some of the world's finest luxury chessmen, these stunning pieces have been turned from solid wood, painstakingly carved with beautiful detailing and hand-polished to create a perfect finish on each individual piece.

At a height of 4.4 inches, the king is a towering regal figure with his intricate finial and double banding detail on his collar. He, along with every piece in his supporting army, is perfectly weighted for balance and they all have billiard cloth applied to their bases to protect your board.

You will notice that the kings in this set are branded at the base with the date “1849”, these ebony reproduction pieces also bear the distinguishable markings of the king’s crown on one white knight and one white rook and one black knight, one black rook. As you know, these particular pieces will sit on the Kings flank and is such a practical innovation to identify their position on the King’s side of the board. This is because, in descriptive chess notation, the rooks and knights were often referred to as being the ‘queens knight, or the ‘king’s rook’. As you would expect from a luxury set, this set of chessmen offers two additional queens, for promotion.

Due to the king’s height and broad base, these particular chessmen are best matched with a boards from 21 inches with larger squares. For this set, we have chosen this beautiful board created in Wenge and Maple. Wenge wood is frequently used in modern interiors due to its parallel graining and abundance in dark, rich tones. This superb quality, extra large chess board is produced by master chessboard maker Rechapados Ferrer of Spain. High-grade wenge and maple veneered construction is used throughout, including the base. Modern fabrication techniques are used, which provide a board with clean, contemporary lines and critical detailing. This board is a perfect companion for these chessmen.

With the use of high-quality grades of ebony and boxwood, this set makes it not only an enviable acquisition but also a worthy investment and phenomenal heirloom for future generations.

We also have a wide range of chess piece cases, if you can bear to put these lovely ornaments away.

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.
