Maybe you think that a king height of just three inches is small for a set of luxury chess pieces, but the broadness of the bases renders perfect scale, with exceptional weight and balance. These Sovereign Series chessmen expertly turned and carved in ebony and natural boxwood are one of the most sublime and elegant Staunton chess sets we carry in our stock here at The Regency Chess Company.

As they say, small is beautiful: there has been no compromise in their detailing and styling whatsoever. In fact, the level of painstaking detail in the intricacy of the craftsmanship works brilliantly considering the diminutive height of the chess pieces; they give the impression of being more intricately detailed than perhaps they would have had they been taller.

We commission the world’s finest producer of wooden chessmen who use clean graded boxwood and ebony to create our luxury pieces. The ebony has been especially selected for its luxurious jet black appearance and although it is a natural material, the uniformity of the tone across the set of pieces is unmistakable. The making of these chess sets is very time consuming and are produced by special order in quantities of just ten at a time with one knight carver responsible for creating each and every knight. Even though they have been carved by human hands, you can expect all four knights in the set to be virtually identical. Each set comes numbered and certified as a genuine product of The Regency Chess Company England and with ebony wood becoming increasingly rare, represents a great investment.

The Sovereign Ebony Chess Men are most suited to a 20-inch chess board but can just about be accommodated onto an eighteen-inch. The 17.75-inch board we have selected for this set has the advantage of playing squares of a dimension that allows the Sovereign pieces to look comfortable. This size of board also tends to be easier to accommodate than our larger boards for display in the home - whether it is for yourself or a gift for a special occasion. The finest wenge and maple veneers are skillfully employed by the chess board manufacturer Rechapados Ferrer in Spain. Wenge wood, frequent used in contemporary interiors owing to its geometrically parallel grain, provides a striking dark chocolatey hue. Light maple always contrasts beautifully with darker woods and the ebony chess men look aesthetically pleasing on this colour combination. The board is constructed to exacting dimensions with clean lines and the finishing is without compromise.

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 color from the playing surface of the board. The veneers used for the underside may vary in color from batch to batch.

This luxury set includes 4 queens for pawn promotion.
