The Regency Chess Company Reviews:

Great product quality, delivered on time.

Google ReviewTim VincentReviewed 05/10/2023

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!

Second time I've used this company and would be my first choice again. The small set I bought for training was high quality, with perfectly weighted pieces. Delivery was prompt and the set was well packaged.

Product Description

  • Large, quality pieces.
  • Crafted from ebonised boxwood.
  • 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 anjan. To create these black pieces, a set in natural boxwood go through a treatment called ebonisation. It's a long and painstaking process but the results are certainly worth the wait to create the appearance of ebony, without its price and also further protect the wood.

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, all the pieces look regal and elegant. These large pieces are nicely weighted and naturally polished with plush flocked bases in green. They are great for home and tournament use and would be suitable for pairing with boards of 20 inches (54 cm) or more.

This set of chess men includes 4 queens

Product Reviews

"Well made, quality finished pieces. Nicely weighted. Excellent product"

M Bob Crawford, 30th July 2021

"I can't rate these pieces highly enough. I bought them because of the knight design. Others have mentioned the pawn size may be a little too big. People I've played with haven't noticed it. I notice it but I also prefer it. Although I initially thought the pieces were a fraction too light, after playing several games, the weighting is really good and the balance is perfect which I think is more important. The pieces are super smooth and perfectly cut with zero faults. Quality is really excellent. A few more real world pictures of the ebonised pieces on the site would have helped but these are stunning and I wouldn't hesitate getting them again. It also contained extra queens which I didn't expect so that is an added bonus."
