The exquisite Blackburne Padauk Chess Men, named after the legendary Joseph Henry Blackburne, possess a captivating beauty. Despite starting the game at a later age and losing his first match, Joseph's unrelenting passion for chess led him to become Manchester's strongest player. He even challenged himself with blindfolded and simultaneous matches, developing the idea of chess clocks for better timekeeping. This luxurious set includes 4 queens and deserves a grand battlefield, such as the recommended 23.6 inch Briarwood and Elmwood Luxury Chess Board. Together, they create a truly unique and stunning experience for any chess enthusiast.
