The Regency Chess Company Reviews:

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.

Really good looking and well made board. Was really well protected in it's packaging and reached me in perfect condition. Was a fair price and complements the chess set I bought it for.

Product Description

  • Stone and metal crushed resin chess pieces.
  • Imerpious 4.25 inch King.
  • Unique metal effect colouring
  • Superb detail.
  • Matched perfectly with a beautiful Spanish board.

Dating from the 8th century BC, this civilisation developed into the city of Rome and subsequently gave its name to the Empire over which it ruled. The Romans expanded into one of the largest empires in the ancient world and evolved from a monarchy, to a classical republic to an autocratic empire over the many centuries of its existence

Contributing to modern law, politics, government, art, literature, warfare, technology, society, language and religion, the Romans also achieved incredible architectural and engineering feats with the construction of extensive road and aqua-duct networks as well as large palaces, monuments and public facilities. 

The craftsmen of Berkeley Chess have expertly recreated the stately atmosphere of Rome with this classical chess set and we here at Regency Chess have matched it with a stunning black anegre and Palisander high gloss board from Spain. The details of each chess piece are as follows:

King:            Julius Caesar
Queen:        A Lady of noble birth in typical dress
Bishop:       A Standard Bearer carrying the insignia of the Legion
Knight:       Equestrian soldier of the period
Rook:          A Roman garrison tower
Pawn:         Armed Legionnaire of the period

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.
