The Regency Chess Company Reviews:

Beautiful board and great customer service. The WhatsApp feature on the website is great for making sure everything is right with the order.

Google ReviewTom KenyonReviewed 23/10/2023

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

  • Weighted, felted bases.

  • Great quality and value for money.

Crafted from selected boxwood, this set of chess pieces offers remarkable quality for the price. As each piece is constructed from one section of wood, subsequently they are strong and robust. This process ensures that every chess piece in this set will last for generations rather than just a few years.

Despite their great price, all of the Down Head Knight range is crafted and finished to an excellent standard. Each piece has been hand-polished to a medium gloss finish, to create an excellent but not overstated shine. The black pieces are ebonised boxwood: a process that creates the look of real ebony and further strengthens and preserves the wood.

This popular range of chess men are also available in other sizes and woods.

We have chosen a board from a company renowned for its expertise in marquetry and backgammon sets. This board is produced by the reputable family Manopoulos based in Greece and is a superbly presented wooden chess board that represents great value for money. Quality mahogany and birch veneers along with master craftsmanship have produced a board with an old-fashioned artisanal feel and look about it. A perfect playing area for our 3.25 Down Head Ebonised Chess Men.

If you can bear to put the pieces away, we have also provided a quality fabric chess bag in a rich burgundy colour. The top of the bag has metal eyelets and a pull cord which pulls tight, sealing the chess pieces inside, protecting them whilst not in use.
