Unique yet still very traditional are the Harrwitz Black and Antiqued Chess Men. Each piece is painstakingly turned then expertly carved from high quality boxwood to create this exceptional set of luxury chess men.

The darker pieces are put through an ebonising process that seeps deep into the hardwood to create the ebony look without the price tag, the light pieces have been antiqued. Both processes give the colours a very professional finish, whilst also further protecting the wood. This superb set of chess men will last for many years.

These reproduction pieces also bear the original markings of the kings crown on 1 black knight, 1 black rook, 1 white knight and 1 white rook and these pieces will sit on the Kings flank. This was a practical innovation to identify their position on the King’s side of the board. This is because, in descriptive chess notation, the rooks and knights were often referred to as being the ‘queens knight, or the ‘king’s rook’.

The King at 3.5 inches (89 mm) along all the pieces are weighted and have a base layer of felt to ensure your board is protected.

Because this particular Leather Chess Board is so stunning and a completely unique design., it is a perfect match for these unique pieces. A large board made from luxury genuine leather, this product has been finished to the utmost level of detail. The completely unique, eye catching design of this leather board features a very versatile colour scheme however the layout of the chess board of course is completely standard. The lighter squares are a warm, tan orange hue while the darker squares feature a marbled black and tan pattern. Each of the inlaid squares has been intricately cross-stitched by hand, creating a wonderful sense of style that is consistent right across the board.

At the Regency Chess Company we are very familiar with the wonderfully varied and unique designs of chess boards and pieces from around the world. One of the absolute best chess houses for uniqueness and quality above all else is Italfama, based near Milan, Italy. This striking board is one of their newer designs and we are proud to offer it as part of our range.
