The Regency Chess Company Reviews:

Lovely quality set, nicely made with classic weighted pieces. Arrived really promptly and was well packaged. Husband was very happy!

Google ReviewJessica IsaacsReviewed 29/09/2023

First of all, the chess set is fantastic for the price. The board is beautiful and the pieces are lovely. This is exactly the size I wanted. The chess set arrived quickly and the package was perfectly done. I'll definitely make another order with Regency Chess!

Google ReviewAubin TReviewed 22/09/2023

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.

THE PIECES
As expected with all Italfama products, these pieces are beautifully crafted from crushed stone composite with superb detailing and finish. All the signs are represented in their easily recognised forms. The Leo and Aquarius Kings stand proud, supported by their beautiful Virgo and Libra Queens. The bishops are portrayed by Aries and Taurus whilst Sagittarius and Capricorn make excellent knights. Gemini and Pisces are on the flanks as the rooks with Cancer and Scorpio making very ornate pawns.

All the pieces are individually marked with their rank to make play easier, and we have matched them with a beautiful 15.75 inch walnut and maple board from Spain to give you The Zodiac Themed Chess Set

THE HISTORY
Referring to the configurations of creatures seen in the stars at night, the word Zodiac literally means 'animals'. Month by month, throughout the year, our Sun apparently moves around a great circle known as 'The Zodiac Belt'. The energy is transversed from the different constellational signs and celestial radiations are transmitted down to Earth. Influences, associated with these movements, can be observed as the planets revolve around the Sun in their respective cycles.

The 12 signs of the Zodiac can be divided into both masculine and feminine, positive and negative, or, active and passive. The masculine signs are Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius, whereas the feminine signs are Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces. These can be memorised by using the following jingle:

The Ram, the Bull, the Heavenly Twins
And now the Crab, the Lion shines,
The Virgin and the Scales.
The Scorpion, Archer and The Goat.
The Man that bears the Watering Pot,
And Fish with glittering tails.

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.
