Beautifully handcrafted in the UK. Stunning attention to detail. Impressive 4.75 inch King. Solid crushed stone resin pieces. Includes high gloss black anegre & maple board. Inspired by the various chess pieces of the medieval era, this exceptionally luxurious set of resin pieces come paired with a deluxe high-gloss black Anegre & Maple wooden board. Although chess originates in the East, probably the most recognisable historical chess set is the Isle Of Lewis Chessmen. These famous whalebone pieces were originally made in medieval Norway, and were discovered on the shores of the Isle Of Lewis in the early 19th century. There are however many other medieval chess pieces on display in museums all around the world. The master sculptors at Berkeley Chess have commemorated some of the lesser-known medieval chess pieces with these stunning resin chessmen, which feature designs based on a 14th century German set. These exquisite carved resin pieces are finished with a stunningly deep red and cream colouring, and we at Regency Chess have paired them up with one of our finest boards – a high-gloss black Anegre and Maple wood board from Spain. This amazing set really has to be seen to be believed!
