The Regency Chess Company Reviews:

Excellent chess set - delivered promptly and very well packaged.

Google ReviewDave MorrisonReviewed 06/10/2023

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.

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!

Product Description

  • Beautifully turned from ebony.
  • Traditional Staunton design.
  • Superb detail and high quality finish.
  • 3.5 inch (8.89 cm) king.
  • Each piece is perfectly weighted with broad felted bases.
  • Ideal for boards with larger squares from 21 inch (53 cm) .

The 1853 Paulsen Reproduction chess men have been named after Louis Paulsen (Jan 1833 to August 1891), who during the 1860 and 1870’s, was among the top five players in the world. Based on the traditional Staunton design, the pieces are handcrafted from solid ebony and boxwood. The king, standing at 3.5 inches tall, along with all the other pieces, are painstakingly carved and finished to perfection. The bases (quite broad for this height) are then covered with billiard cloth so that your board will not be damage during battle.

To complement these historic pieces, we would recommend looking at boards boards from 21 inches with larger squares to accommodate the broader bases. Most of the woods used in these boards will complement the ebony and boxwood pieces, no problem at all. However please feel free to contact our customer services team if you have any concerns or queries.
