A modern variation on the classic chess sets of the past. These contemporary chessmen showcase the twinning of metal & leather to stunning effect. Winner of the converted Design Centre award in 1977 for the two sets created for HM The Queen’s Silver Jubilee.
The King’s playing pieces; the Rook and Knight are embossed with his crown (the Bishops being divine without allegiance to Crown only to God) and of course, there are a pair of extra Queens as well. The set is hand inlaid throughout in our Dauphin calf leather. The King stands 57.33 mm / 2.25″ and suits a chessboard chequer size of 45 mm / 1.77″.
