Custom Chess Set With Luxury Chess Board
Our first custom Chess board was created in 1961 after a request by Alfred Dunhill’s then Chairman, Richard Dunhill. At the time we were making and supplying leather-bound books to this great British brand.
Our luxury chessboards are still handmade in the grounds of Geoffrey Parker’s home; this is where he made his first board was made in 1961. Today we still use the same skills to produce our luxury chess boards as Geoffrey himself. Although a lot has changed with the business since this first commission, including technological advances and a third-generation director; the attention to detail and quality still remains.
Customise your Luxury Chess Board
Our custom chess boards can feature bespoke elements including hand-embossed logos; initials and other small details to truly make your luxury chess set bespoke. Our team can gently guide you through the customisation process, when you place an order with us we’ll send you a small box with samples of each of our leather colours in to help you choose your perfect colour combination.
