Product Description

  • Imperious size.
  • Crafted from rosewood.
  • 4.25 inch (107 mm) king.
  • 2 additional queens.
  • Weighted for perfect balance.
  • Bases covered with billiard cloth.
  • Certificate of authenticity.
  • Luxury 23.6 inch (60 cm) Spanish made board.
Carved from a solid block of exotic rosewood, the 4.25 inch king in this luxury series is one of the finest chess pieces we stock here at the Regency Chess Company. The imperious size brings with it a weightiness that feels brilliant to play with, an attribute shared by all of the Stretford Knight Chessmen matched perfectly here with our luxury Spanish made board constructed from wooden veneers of graded black anegre, maple and palisander rosewood. The chess pieces reflect beautifully in the high gloss finish.

The weight of the chessmen is complemented by an exquisite level of detail, something we have to thank our craftsmen for. The knight in this luxury chess set is of particular quality, boasting some of the finest hand carvings anywhere in the luxury range.

His flowing mane is obvious in its intricacy, while sharp-eyed connoisseurs will notice the indented neck, a feature that takes extraordinary skill to pull off consistently. Next to the knight is a thick rook that holds itself superbly on any chess board, with a heavy set appearance suggesting its reliability. With these two chess pieces you can see the contrast that defines these Stretford Knight Rosewood Chessmen.

The bishop seems to combine the nimble intelligence of the knight with the sheer power of the castle, its impenetrable base topped with a delicate, tuliped head. The queen shares this powerful elegance and is usurped in grandeur only by her authoritative king.

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.

"Beautiful chess set. A joy to play with."

N Gibson, 12th January 2021

"I bought a good chess set from a popular UK online company recently which i was very happy with although i passed this set on i really feel like i have upgraded enormously with the Stretford Knight set. It is quite simply pure class and a delight to play with. If you are not sure what to buy and think these sets are high in price when compared with other online sellers please be patient, save a little extra money and buy from here. Me and my chess partners are really over the moon. Totally fantastic service also."

"Amazing chess set. Highly recommended. Great quality and service. Thanks."

S Sevciuc, 9th June 2019

"I have had the Stratford set for several months now and can now confirm that it was the right choice. All the pieces and beautifully carved and have a good weight to them. The ‘black’ pieces are made from a dark brown would which I prefer rather than black. The board is nicely made and each square accommodates all the pieces with a couple of millimetres of boarder (at least with the King and Queen). The chess set has proven popular with friends several of whom have now got back into playing having not done so for years. I also have a 14 inch folding travel chess set also from Regency and this is also made to a very high standard."
