RC French Regence Chess Pieces

Official Staunton™ Chess Company

£199.95 GBP 


The design of this remarkable set of ornate chess pieces is inspired by the royal courts of Europe that first championed the game in the western world. Each piece is hand turned by our master craftsmen, before a long ebonising process colours one set of pieces black. Once finished, the end result is a unique collection of antique reproduction chess pieces based on the 18th century ornaments used by the European upper classes. The gentry on the continent were eager to see the finest players compete against each other, and offered huge rewards to the winners. And, with such lucrative prizes on offer, there is little surprise that such excellent chess pieces were used during the matches.
