How big is this?

Second time I've used this company and would be my first choice again. The small set I bought for training was high quality, with perfectly weighted pieces. Delivery was prompt and the set was well packaged.

I needed to make a speedy order, so I contacted The Regency Chess Company and they made sure they looked out for my name/order and got it sent off that same afternoon. When they noted an item I had ordered was out of stock they upgraded me to ensure we got the order in time. Super great service and so helpful they were on WhatsApp too - just really lovely to deal with. Thank you so much again!

Excellent service received, and speedy delivery. The set looks far better in person than the pictures on the website. Thank you.

The Down Head series are available in a variety of sizes and is the Regency Chess most popular entry-level range of wooden Staunton chess pieces. These chessmen are single-weighted and generously felted on their bases to ensure the wood remains protected. They are all 'one piece' carvings using a design that is not only great to look at but equally practical to play with.

The Down Heads have been fashioned from ebonised boxwood and boxwood, and truly represent excellent value for money. They are crafted and finished in the same factory as some of the world’s finest chessmen, with the very same talented craftsmen carving these that create our luxury chess pieces.

We have matched these super little chess pieces with an excellent quality chessboard produced by reputable chessboard manufacturer Rechapados Ferrer S.A. of Spain. Using quality Walnut and Maple veneered construction and modern fabrication techniques, they have produced a playing field with sharp lines, meticulous detailing and a modern look with clean lines.

This lovely little board is also a perfect companion for our hand-crafted solid Sheesham and Boxwood Draughts (Checkers) box set. The hinged box is constructed from solid Sheesham (golden rosewood), wax polished and lined with green felt. The hidden magnetic closing mechanism allows for clean lines on the box. The draughts pieces themselves are constructed from solid boxwood and ebonised boxwood and are naturally wax polished.

Whilst your draught pieces are in play, we have also added a chess piece box. A simple yet elegant wooden box, the perfect place to store your chessmen. Crafted in Europe from Birchwood this box is excellent quality. The outer dimensions are approx 197mm x 135mm x 78 mm

This is a superb combination set to have at home or as a gift for a games enthusiast.

Please note that when the chessmen are placed in the box it is normal and intentional for them to lay down on top of each other. They are NOT intended to stand up inside the box.

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.
