The extraordinary design of the La Valletta Chessmen, hand turned from solid rosewood, was inspired by the historic invasions of Malta’s capital city. We have matched these remarkable chess pieces with a beautifully crafted chess board produced by esteemed manufacturer Rechapados Ferrer S.A. of Spain using the finest anegre and maple veneers. Finished in high gloss lacquer, this chess board is a masterpiece. Slightly thicker than our other deluxe chess boards, the presentation and feel of this example is closer to a more substantial solid wooden board construction.

The black and white knights are undoubtedly the most stunning on the board. The detailed bridle gives each horse a reticent look; well trained and ready for battle. These chessmen take more than two months to make, and it is of no great surprise that the knight is the ornament that takes the longest to carve.

A hand turned rook stands next to the knight, supporting a traditional castle top underneath a slim midriff; comfortable in hand and a true delight to play with. Finally the classic pawns; sixteen chess pieces made with the same amount of care as the others, such attention to detail reflecting what many chess players insist on - that the pawn is as important as any other combatant.

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.
