Italian craftsmanship

There are three hardwoods that we commission for our high end chess men, namely rosewood, ebony and red sandalwood. It does take something more, however, than just elite and exotic materials to gain entry to the Regency Chess Luxury Chess Pieces collection.

Entrant pieces must be hand carved and turned manually ensuring absolutely that the closest thing to perfection is achieved. For this very reason, it is imperative that we meet all of our suppliers and visit them, regardless of where they are in the world.

The Modica Rosewood Chessmen are an addition to our range sourced from Italfama in Florence, Italy, a company we trust implicitly to maintain their consistently high standard of craftsmanship.

This stunning set of chessmen has a sturdy, 3 inch king standing alongside a beautifully rounded queen. It is the rook in this set of Italian chessmen, though, that really grabs the attention. Its flared top is remarkable and looks particularly impressive in solid rosewood, with lines of deep red grain running vertically through. The knight is also excellently designed while the bishop shares the same triple-turned top ring detailing as the king and queen.

To complete the Italian workmanship in this set, we have matched these pieces with a stunning Elm burl and maple board from another renowned Italian company. Mastellone Giuseppe are well know around the world for their expertise in the specialist field of inlaid wood applications. Using the traditional Sorrento Wood Inlay technique, they have been involved in interior design projects in luxury villas and residences for over 20 years.

The board itself is an imposing 54 cm board with squares of nearly 5 cms across. The elm creates the border and dark squares and with its natural burl patterning, each board created will be stunningly unique. Maple veneers create the light squares and with the high gloss finish, the combined result is nothing less than perfection.
