The king and queen have wide bases, making them suitable for chess boards of at least 21 inches (55 cm). The deep red color of these pieces complements dark wood playing surfaces. With their intricate bridles, the black and white knights steal the show on the board. Each piece takes over two months to make, with the knight being the most time-consuming to carve. These chessmen exude elegance and sophistication, perfect for the discerning player.

Elevate your game with The La Valletta Redwood Chessmen, featuring a hand-crafted rook towering over the knight, topped with a traditional castle silhouette and a sleek midriff design.
