Rarely does a set of chess pieces shine so brilliantly as the Sicilian-inspired Messina Gold and Silver Plated Italian Chessmen. It is fair to say that, within the Regency Chess Collection, nothing catches the eye quite like the detail on these pieces.

They share their name with the port city of Messina, Sicily, where for centuries, merchants would compete to sell their imports. The products attracting the highest bids were often those with the brightest, most exotic look.

The intricate patterning and colouring of each of these breathtaking pieces gives them ounces of character. On the rook, for example, there are vine engravings reaching up to a superb turret, while the queen wears a corset of silver or gold at the bottom of her crown.

The mildly Staunton shape of these chess pieces is moulded in the Italfama workshop in Florence, with moulds that are exclusive to Italfama and made nowhere else in the world. And then the expert Florentine craftsmen set to work. No piece is overlooked and the pawns display an extraordinary amount of delicacy in their ornamental design. Our product team at Regency Chess in Frome, Somerset decided to match these exquisite pieces with an Italian Leather Chess Board to create the The Messina Gold and Silver Leather Italian Chess Set.

These precious metal chess pieces suit boards between 13 inches (33 cm) and 17 inches (43 cm).
