Product Description

  • Weighted and felted.
  • 4 inch (102 mm) king.

The Leningrad series comprises sets of quality large chessmen available in ebonised boxwood, acacia and anjan. The dark pieces in this set are crafted from acacia, a beautiful grained wood that is slightly lighter than Golden rosewood (sheesham).

The Leningrad Series Chessmen have become one of the best sellers on the Regency Chess website due to their quality of finish and weight. 'The solid feel in hand' is, in fact, a compliment we hear regularly from customers. Not only that, the carving on the Leningrad chessmen is slightly more ornate, especially on the knights. With their height and detail, all the pieces look regal and elegant. These large pieces are nicely weighted and naturally polished with plush flocked bases in green. They are great for home and tournament use and looks great on the superbly presented board made in Greece.

The family owned Manopoulos are renowned for their expertise in marquetry and backgammon sets, so you can expect this board to be of the highest quality. It is a delightfully presented wooden chess board, representing great value for money. The quality mahogany and birch veneers along with master workmanship has produced a board with an old fashioned artisanal feel and look about it.

Put together, these pieces and board create a lovely traditional wooden chess set that will last a lifetime but not break the bank.
