Professional Chess Sets

Our chess sets are made as professional chess sets first and foremost. Handmade to order with chess pieces carved and triple weighted so that foul play is prevented; when the chess piece is tilted to a 45-degree angle it will right itself to ensure that a gentleman playing cannot concede the game with the cuff of his sleeve.

Luxury Chess Board – design a board to suit your style

Our luxury chess board has been central to Geoffrey Parker’s business from the start. It was the first board game we produced, setting Geoffrey Parker on the path to becoming synonymous with high-quality board games. Since then, we’ve shipped our luxury chess boards worldwide, all while continuing to handcraft them in our workshops in England and including the stunning Staunton chess pieces.

Our custom chess set is perfect for a player of any skill level; for those who love a game in the evening to those who play in tournaments. Handmade to order these luxury chess sets are nothing short of beautiful; created to stay on display they can take pride of place in your living room inviting all to play.

Custom Options

At Geoffrey Parker the custom options are endless, below are just a few of the possibilities but while extensive the list is not complete. Almost anything is possible so please feel free to request should you not see what you require below.

  • Custom colour choices – choose your board colour, your plinth and frame colour. You can also have your chessmen bases changed should you want leather embossed with your initials below each piece.
  • Names, logos and initials. The possibilities with this are endless, we have created a whole range of designs from the Rolling Stones logo on each light square to a subtle hand-embossed initial on the corner of the board. We have also had customers place logos and custom messages hand-embossed on the plinth.
  • Change the chessmen – our sets come with hand-carved triple-weighted pieces, but we can also accommodate custom requests, such as sterling silver, acrylic, or custom shapes.

Staunton Chess

This stunning board features our classic Staunton chess set which works together with this beautiful piece of leatherwork. Our luxury chess set features a hand-inlaid leather chessboard that sits inside the plinth.

Pivot the board up to access the chessmen, stowed snugly in their individual black felt compartments. As with all our products, this board is handmade to order. This enables us to offer a high level of custom options, but it does take time to make.

I have to say this is one of the most beautiful boards I’ve ever purchased. The customer service was amazing and the board itself is even better than I could have ever imagined.
