handmade chess set
£675.00 – £915.00 GBP
Right at the core of Geoffrey Parker is our luxury chessboards, handmade to order by our master craftsmen to your design. Our chessboards are compiled from separate pieces of Dauphin calf leather and we can make these boards in numerous chequer sizes, colourways & thicknesses. We tend to make a chequer’s width (where possible) around the playing chequers for the frame so that taken pieces can be put there if required. A non-slip charcoal suedette is used to trim the underside of the chessboards. The two thicknesses of chessboards available are single thick; 18mm / 0.71″ thick, and our double thick; 41mm / 1.61″ thick.
Adding a touch of fun & nostalgia to our chess sets; we utilise our printing machine to recreate a series of themed watercolour illustrations onto our luxury leather chess sets. Themed children’s chess sets include J.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit and Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. They are all completed with a set of hand-painted crushed stone & resin chessmen.
