The Leningrad series comprises sets of quality large chessmen available in ebonised boxwood, acacia and anjan. These black pieces have been created with a set in natural boxwood go through a treatment called ebonisation. It's a long and painstaking process but the results are certainly worth the wait to create the appearance of ebony, without its price and also further protect the wood.

The Leningrad series have become one of our best sellers on The Regency Chess website. The ornate carving, additional queens, quality of finish and perfect weight are particularly noteworthy. Indeed, we regularly have compliments regarding ‘the solid feel in the hand’ from customers. With their height, detail and finish, all the pieces look regal and and elegant and their flocked bases will protect your board.

We have matched these lovely pieces with a beautiful 21 inch board that has been expertly crafted in Italy. The high quality elm burl pattern creates a unique looking board each time and the maple veneer is a perfect contrast as the lighter square. This board is a stunning stage to showcase your Leningrad Ebonised pieces. It’s as if they were made for each other and exude pure luxury.

This masterpiece is created by Mastellone Giuseppe, well renowned around the world for their expertise in the specialist field of inlaid wood applications. For over 20 years and using the traditional Sorrento Wood Inlay technique, they have been present in projects involving interior design in luxury villas and residences
