  • Unique, yet still very traditional are the Harrwitz Ebony and Antiqued Chess Men. As with their ebonised cousins, each Harrwitz chess piece is painstakingly turned then expertly carved from high quality woods, to create this exceptional set of luxury reproduction chess men.

    The darker pieces are solid ebony and as such makes this set of chessmen something of an investment. The light pieces have been antiqued to give this unique look and stunning combination. Both sides boast a very professional finish, whilst also further protecting the wood. Without doubt, this superb set of chess men will last for many years - making for a great family heirloom, perhaps.

    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. These pieces will sit well on the 20.7 inch board.

    As with the ebonized pieces, these ebony 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, as we know, 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 name Harrwitz is in memory of Daniel Harrwitz born in Germany in 1821. An established chess player during his time, he was renowned for his reputation (especially in Paris) as a player of blindfold games. He competed against the likes of Howard Staunton, Adolf Anderssen and Paul Morphy during his time. He withdrew during his game with Morphy with a claim of ill health and subsequently retired. He passed away in 1884 at the age of just 62.

    This Leather Chess Board is simply stunning and a completely unique design, made from luxury genuine leather, this product has been finished to the utmost level of detail. This luxury chess board is suitable for pairing with chess pieces with a king height of 4 inches or up to 4.5 inches as a maximum.

    The completely unique, head-turning design of this leather board features a very versatile colour scheme. 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 newest designs and we are proud to offer it as part of our range.

    Made from the highest quality leather and finished for extra durability, this chess board will complete this perfect chess set. Of all of our larger boards, this one certainly stands out as the most idiosyncratic and super stylish product.
