The Chess Store Australia is pleased to offer our New Release and possibly an Australian First, reproduction of "The English Edwardian Carved French Regency Style" Luxury Chess Pieces set. The original design dates back to the mid-18th through to the early 20th century and has evolved over those many decades. The French Regency pattern was based on the period of Richelieu and Mazarin, made famous at the Café de La Regence in Paris, which was a renowned chess club that was frequented by the best chess players and celebrities of that time.
Our new impressive English Edwardian Regency design is reflected through the massive form of the pieces, the fine execution, and the fierce look of the two piece knights that are carved in great detail. As in the English sets, the Queens were represented by orbs, the King’s floral crown closely resembles the modern Staunton signature for the queen and the Knights were always taller than the bishops. The bishops have side cuts on the top orbs and the rooks are the straight type.
This full Club-sized Chess set features a 114mm (4.5") tall king, the ornate Chess pieces have concave turned bases to improve stability and balance are hand carved by our master craftsmen from premium grade Boxwood, stained Antique Black and Boxwood. All the Chess pieces are weighted, have luxurious billiard cloth base pads for a soft and cushion feel when handled. (Total 34 Chess pieces includes 2 Extra Free Queens)
