One of the most popular set of chess pieces in the whole Regency Chess range, the 3 inch Down Head Knight Chessmen are hand turned and crafted from sheesham and boxwood.

These Down Head Knight chess men have been polished to a medium natural gloss by the same talented craftsmen responsible for some of the worlds highest quality. Their bases are covered in billiard cloth to protect your board when in use.

Renowned for their expertise in marquetry and backgammon sets, this board is produced by the reputable family business, Manopoulos, based in Greece.
