Expertly crafted in the iconic Staunton design, these British Ebonised chess men exemplify quality and value without breaking the bank. From the intricate details of the King's finial to the bishop's mitre and the rook's crenellations, each piece is meticulously finished to exceed expectations. Beginning as solid boxwood, the ornaments are expertly turned, carved, and weighted for a professional feel. Half of the pieces undergo ebonisation to achieve the look of authentic ebony at a fraction of the cost, while all pieces are carefully weighted and felted on their bases. 

This set may be entry level, but don't be fooled - it includes 4 queens! The 3.5 inch king height is ideal for the nineteen inch veneer chess board, which boasts fine quality inlays. While this classic design is available at many chess outlets, our version is crafted in Europe to an exceptional standard and offers superb value for money. The board has a clean contemporary look with no notation, and green felt feet on the base protect your table tops. With a solid and heavy feel, this board is the perfect battleground for the British Ebonised Chess Men.

This iconic British Staunton Black and Mahogany Chess Set has been a staple in the chess world for years, used in famous tournaments with renowned players and celebrities sitting on either side. Its versatility allows it to complement a variety of chess piece styles, whether it be brown wooden chessmen or these elegant black ones. The Regency Chess Company is proud to offer the very best version of this beloved design, crafted by Spanish chess board maker Rechapados Ferrer for enhanced precision, cleanliness, and use of high-quality materials. For those seeking a durable and traditional wooden chess board, look no further than this exceptional set. 

Sustainably sourced wood from Europe is used in this chess set. For those who want to protect their pieces when not in use, we also include a beautiful burgundy fabric bag with metal eyelets and a cord to securely store them.
