The Sovereign series chessmen, in ebony and natural boxwood, is one of the most beautiful and elegant Staunton chess sets we hold in our stock here at the Regency Chess Company. The king height is just three inches and although seemingly small for a set of luxury chess pieces, the broadness of the bases means that the scale is spot on. The weighting and balance are as near perfect as you will get. They are most comfortable on a twenty-inch chessboard or will squeeze onto an eighteen inch at a push, depending on the square size.

What's particularly significant about these chess pieces, is there has been no compromise in their detail and styling whatsoever. To be honest, the size of these chessmen works extremely well with the high level of detail to the point where they seem more detailed than they would if they were larger. To summarise; small is beautiful.

Expertly crafted by the world's finest producer of wooden chessmen, this luxury chess set has been created using clean graded boxwood and ebony. The ebony has been selected for its luxurious jet black look and the uniformity of the tone across the set is excellent. These sets are produced by special order in quantities of no more than ten at a time with just one knight carver used for each and every knight. This means you can expect all four knights in the set to be virtually identical, despite the fact that they have been carved by human hands. Each set comes numbered and certified as a genuine product of The Regency Chess Company England and represents a great investment. This luxury set of chessmen includes 4 queens.

The Sovereign Ebony chessmen are most comfortable on a twenty-inch chessboard or will squeeze onto an eighteen inch at a push, depending on the square size. For such a stunning and special set of chessmen, we have chosen this beautiful 20-inch grey briarwood and elmwood chessboard. Made in Italy to the highest standards, its mesmerising burr chequerboard finish and high-quality gloss lacquer finish, will allow your chess pieces to reflect majestically in the light. The matching of these two components has created a set of timeless, classic beauty, fit for a Sovereign.
