THE HISTORY
‘Robbing from the rich to give to the poor’ was how Robin Hood became an English Folklore hero.

Traditionally portrayed as being adorned in Lincoln green and supported by his band of Merry Men, Robin Hood became a popular figure in the late medieval period. To this day, he continues to be widely represented in films, television and literature.

THE PIECES
Looking every inch the character we all learned about in our childhood, the Robin Hood king in this set is superbly detailed. With his bow, quiver and sword and even a dagger tucked into his belt, he is a force to be reckoned with. Maid Marian stands elegantly at his side in a long flowing cream gown whilst a fearsome King John looks on.

Who else but Friar Tuck could play the the bishop. He is typically depicted with staff and ale in hand and a lamb at his feet. Castle guards and the Merry Men make up the knights and the pawns on both sides. Each piece beautifully decked in their Lincoln Green and chain mail.

The rooks too are beautifully ornate, portrayed as trees with little dwellings hidden in them for Robin Hood and as regal castles for King John. Without doubt each piece is an ornament in its own right.

Matched with our 15.75 inch Spanish walnut and maple board, this makes a stunning chess set for any Robin Hood fan or chess enthusiast. These Robin Hood chessmen are also available without a board.

Please note that as these pieces are hand painted, there may be some inconsistencies in the level of detail and colour and therefore your pieces may be very slightly different from the images shown. Any inconsistencies however are minimal.

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.
