Incredible service and products. Quality is amazing and the customer service is perfect too. Couldn't ask for more!

Google ReviewAlice HalleyReviewed 21/10/2023

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

  • Hand crafted in the UK.
  • Stunning attention to detail.
  • Towering 7.6 inch King.
  • Solid crushed stone resin pieces.
  • Luxury inlaid wooden board included.
This beautifully characterful resin set is the largest chess set that we offer - by a long way! With a towering 7.6inch high king, it doesn't get much more impressive than this!

The fables of Reynard the Fox are among the longest-established literary traditions in Western history - with even Geoffrey Chaucer basing some of his writing on them. Reynard the Fox himself ties the various tales together - which comprise of beasts satirically taking the places of various human character tropes.

These humourous tales have proven so popular that the word 'renard' has replaced the word for fox in French. Although he is cowardly and self-seeking, Reynard himself is a sympathetic hero and a strikingly accurate mirror of the human condition.

The master craftsmen at Berkeley Chess in Somerset, UK have taken these beloved and charming characters and adapted them into this wonderful chess set, finished with a deep, handsome cream and russet brown colouring. We have paired these incredible pieces with a rich inlaid wooden Spanish chess board, completing this exemplary 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.
