Product Description

  • Large, quality pieces.
  • Crafted from beautiful anjan wood.
  • Weighted and felted.
  • 4 inch (102 mm) king.
  • Two additional queens.
  • Ideal for a 20 inch (54 cm) board or larger.
The Leningrad series comprises sets of quality large chessmen available in ebonised boxwood, acacia and now they are available in the stunning anjan wood. Scientifically known as Hardwickia, Anjan is indigenous to India where it is the hardest and heaviest of the timbers from trees found in India. It is also very durable and termite resistant.

Anjan has a colouring that is not dissimilar from the lovely deep rich hues you find in Rosewood, and therefore creates some very beautiful chess pieces.

Because of the quality of finish and weight of the Leningrad Series Chessmen, they have become one of the best sellers on the Regency Chess website. In fact, the solid feel in hand is a compliment we hear regularly from customers.

Not only that, the Leningrad carving is slightly more ornate, especially on the knights. With their height and stature, all the pieces look regal and elegant. Like the other pieces in this series, these large chess men are perfectly weighted and naturally polished with plush flocked bases in green applied to the bases. They are ideal for use in the home and perfect for tournament use. Pair with boards of 20 inches (54 cm) or more to create your set.

This set of chess men includes 4 queens
