Lovely quality set, nicely made with classic weighted pieces. Arrived really promptly and was well packaged. Husband was very happy!

Excellent service received, and speedy delivery. The set looks far better in person than the pictures on the website. Thank you.

Many thanks - our replacement knight arrived on Thursday. We are so impressed with your service. We have made a donation to Refugee and Migrant Network Sutton - a brilliant local charity making people welcome in our community.

Product Description

  • Traditionally Staunton chessmen.
  • Crafted from Acacia.
  • 3 inch (76 mm) king.
  • Weighted and felted.
  • Matched with a 15.75 inch (40 cm) board from Greece.
The Down Head design is a classic carving that we have sold for years. These particular chess men are created from Acacia wood, which is, you will be pleased to learn, more sustainable and less regulated than Sheesham. Acacia is a beautiful grainy wood not too dissimilar to Sheesham, maybe slightly lighter in hue.

As with all our Down Head range, these Acacia editions are a lovely set of weighted chess men made to our usual exacting high standard. They all come with thick green billiard cloths as standard and they sit, perfectly on a beautiful Greek creation in the walnut and maple. Best know for their expertise in marquetry, Manopoulos also produce a range of lovely chess boards, some of which we have added to Regency Chess board range.

This combination of stunning coloured woods, with their own unique natural grain variations and expert craftsmanship, makes for a lovely set to keep or give away as a special gift.
