These chess pieces are stunning, not only for their size but for the elaborate engravings and intricate details. Rosewood is known for its rich and varied colors, often displaying shades of brown with deep veins. The natural color variations make each set of pieces truly unique. Every pawn, rank, and king is skillfully crafted with additional carving on the bases and collars. Each piece is weighted to perfection and the bases are adorned with billiard cloth.

The word 'Garvi' in Hindi means "proud", a fitting description for our stunning King chess piece, standing tall at 4.25 inches, including his intricate finial. Drawing inspiration from the Mughal era, the elegant Queen design is reminiscent of the Taj Mahal's minarets, a 17th century architectural masterpiece. Her headdress features a pointed circle and a decorative spire, second in size only to the King's crown.

The tabletop rook represents a unique and innovative addition to the Regency Chess Collection. While still maintaining the iconic Staunton shape, this exceptional chess piece is crafted from solid rosewood and boasts exquisite ornamentation. As for the knight, often considered the most crucial attacker and protector in the game of limitless strategies, it is represented in the Garvi Series as a gracefully curved horse, intricately hand-carved from the base up. Its elegant neck is adorned with a lavish mane, expertly crafted with intricate detail.

The grandness of The Garvi Series chessmen necessitates a 23-inch (60 cm) board. To complement these exquisite pieces, we have paired them with a stunning Italian board, resulting in The Luxury Staunton Garvi Rosewood and Walnut Grand Chess Set.
