The fact is that many of our customers prefer their sets for display rather than to be use in games. Like a fine musical instrument, a vintage luxury automobile, or a first edition classic book, the luxury chess set is to be admired. Plenty of Regency Chess sets have been purchased by individuals who only have a rudimentary understanding of the game, if any at all. In fact, these are our typical customer for luxury sets – those who wish to see the set as a design accessory or a conversation piece. When you see our finely crafted pieces of fine hardwoods it is quite simple to understand why they are strictly on display. In particular, the expertise with which the knights are designed, hand carved, and finished make them the hallmark pieces in the set.

Whether it be with a fine glass of port, your favourite cigar, or in the company of a connoisseur, we implore you to play a game or two on these luxurious heirloom sets – as life is simply too short to deny oneself such a luxury!
