The Leningrad series comprises sets of quality large chessmen available in ebonised boxwood, acacia and now they are available in the stunning anjan wood. Scientifically known as Hardwickia, Anjan is indigenous to India where it is the hardest and heaviest of the timbers from trees found in India. It is also very durable and termite resistant.

Anjan has a colouring that is not dissimilar from the lovely deep rich hues you find in Rosewood, and therefore creates some very beautiful chess pieces.

Because of the quality of finish and weight of the Leningrad Series Chessmen, they have become one of the best sellers on the Regency Chess website. In fact, the solid feel in hand is a compliment we hear regularly from our customers.

Not only that, the Leningrad carving is slightly more ornate, especially on the knights. With their height and stature, all the pieces look regal and elegant. Like the other pieces in this series, these large chess men are perfectly weighted and naturally polished with plush flocked bases in green applied to the bases. They are ideal for use in the home and perfect for tournament use. This set of chess men includes 4 queens.

Constructed by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain, this board is created from graded wooden veneers of black anegre, maple for the playing area and beautifully grained palisander rosewood for the border. With its ultra gloss finish, the chess men are a perfect match and reflect beautifully on this battlefield.

If you can bear to put your chess ornaments away when not in use, then we have added a stunning chess piece cabinet to complete this set. Crafted from mahogany, this lovely box has deep reddish hues, which are complemented by the brass hinges and lock. Currently this is the only box we stock that is lockable.

A fully lined interior with green flocking will protect your prize pieces when not in play and can accommodate pieces with a king height of up to 4.4 inches.

It is important to note that they will only fit lying down which is quite normal. Wooden pieces are hardwood and will come to no harm.

External Dimensions 10 inches x 6.25 inches x 4.25 inches

The chess board in this set has been expertly crafted by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain using precision laser cutting techniques and stunning wooden veneers combined with expert lacquering and finishing. The underside of the board is finished in a satin veneer that is a different colour from the playing surface of the board. The veneers used for the underside may vary in colour from batch to batch.
