The Regency Chess Company Reviews:

We ordered a travel chess set for our Grandson's birthday present to be sent direct to him. We were kept informed of delivery progress and it arrived - as hoped - the day before his birthday. Apparently it is as good as it appeared on the website and he is absolutely thrilled with it.

Excellent service received, and speedy delivery. The set looks far better in person than the pictures on the website. Thank you.

The Old English Elite Staunton chessmen are by far one the finest examples of Staunton chessmen available. The design is classic vintage Staunton with every element taking its cue from the Victorian era sets that have become legendary. What is most striking is how the shanks are so perfectly curved and nicely pinched in the centre; this, combined with the broad bases, results in the amazing proportion that these pieces exhibit with each element fitting perfectly within the set. The pieces are of course weighted in their bases and exhibit superb balance. The uniformity of the chessmen is outstanding - you can line up all four knights and it's virtually impossible to see any difference between them. In order to achieve this, only one knight carver is used to make all the knights. Consequently these chessmen are produced in very limited numbers, in batches of just five sets at a time.

The chessmen are made from the highest grade black ebony and clean grained boxwood. The value of ebony continues to rise as it becomes more and more scarce, making this set an excellent investment opportunity. They have been expertly finished and polished to a natural shine. No lacquer is used to create this amazing finish, it's the hand polishing of the dense hard woods that have created such an immaculate finish, something you won't find in inferior sets. Each set is uniquely numbered and certified as a genuine Regency Chess Company product.

The board that these pieces are paired with is produced by the reputable family Manopoulos based in Greece. It is a superbly presented wooden chess board and represents great value for money. Quality Walnut and Maple veneered construction has produced a board with an old fashioned artisanal feel and look about it. A perfect companion for our Old English Elite series chess pieces.
