Crafted with precision and a keen eye for detail, the Leningrad Chess Men series boasts exquisite sets of elegant and sizable pieces, available in ebonised boxwood, acacia and anjan. Using a meticulous and time-consuming process known as ebonisation, natural boxwood pieces are transformed into a striking black hue, evoking the luxurious appearance of ebony without the high price tag. This technique not only enhances the appearance of the pieces but also provides extra protection for the wood. It's no surprise that the Leningrad Series Chessmen are among the top-selling items at Regency Chess, with customers raving about their weight and superior finish that exudes a sense of sophistication and refinement.

The Leningrad carvings possess an added level of intricacy due to their taller stature, particularly noticeable in the exquisite detail of the knights. Each piece exudes a regal and elegant aura, enhanced by their grand size and perfectly balanced weight. The bases are adorned with lush green flocking, adding to the luxurious feel of the set. Including four queens, this set of chessmen is accompanied by a nineteen-inch veneer chess board with fine inlays, specifically chosen to complement the Leningrad Ebonised Chess Men. While this is a timeless design offered by most chess sellers, our version is crafted in Europe to the highest standards, providing exceptional value for such a quality wooden chess board. We pride ourselves on offering the most superior version of this classic design.

Our exclusive version is produced by Rechapados Ferrer, a renowned Spanish chess board maker, ensuring superior quality and precision. To protect your surfaces, the base is equipped with green felt feet. The board features a clean, contemporary design without any notation, giving it a sleek appearance.
