Product Description

  • Stone crushed resin chess pieces.
  • Striking cardinal red and cream colouring
  • Superb detail.
  • Matched with stunning Spanish board.

In each era of English history dominant characters and symbols have emerged to illustrate the period. Typically, these are from the worlds of monarchy, military, religion, literature or politics. This beautiful set has been created in a deep cardinal (red) colour, with six such symbols which characterise the evolution of this great country:

King: King Henry VIII
Queen:  Queen Elizabeth I
Bishop: Thomas a Becket
Knight: Sir Francis Drake
Rook:   Norman English Tower
Pawn: English Rose

These classic pieces have been matched with a beautiful black angre and maple board to create a most enviable and breathtaking chess set.

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.
