This exquisite chess set includes our French Regency Antique Reproduction chess pieces in genuine ebony and boxwood together with our Black and Ash Burl Deluxe Chess Board.This elegant chess set is a replica of an original French Regency pattern produced in Europe in the early 1800s. This unique design was named after for Café de la Regence in Paris, France which was one of the most popular establishments for meeting and competing in a friendly game of chess. There were many variations of the Regency produced during this period with each pattern keeping with the general elements of the design. This particular model was very common and we have carefully replicated the features that make this design unique. The pieces are made from genuine and boxwood and are nicely weighed. The ebony is an obsidian black and polished to a beautiful luster. The king is 4.3” tall and has a base diameter of 1.5” and are weighted for additional stability on the chess board. We include two extra queens for pawn promotion and a certificate of authenticity so you will always know what it is, when it was made, and where it came from.
Our Black and Ash Burl Deluxe chess board is a favorite for ebony and boxwood chess sets. The black and golden color of the natural ash burl wood creates a rich looking backdrop with its high gloss glass-like finish. A pinstripe around the playing area along with an extra wide frame adds elegance to an already spectacular chess board. This is an inlaid chess board made for us by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain and the quality of the craftsmanship is unsurpassed. The squares are 2.125" with the chess board measuring 21.5" overall and .5" thick. Whether you are a collector or just looking for a unique and special chess set for your home, this one of kind chess set will make every game more fun.
