Buying a chess set as a gift?

Buy the best chess set you can!

Experts in wooden chess sets!

Wooden chess sets are a beauty to behold and are extremely collectable! Whether you are buying a luxury chess set made from an exotic wood such as ebony or padauk (red sandalwood) or an economy or mid-range chess set made from rosewood or sheesham wood (golden rosewood) let us know. We are educated in the art of wood turning and carving and can help find you the perfect combination of chess pieces and chess board. Our chess boards come from the finest manufacturers in Europe and our chess pieces are hand-made by the best artisans in the world.

Beautiful Chess Pieces

Each chess piece we sell is made with the greatest of care by the finest artisans in the world. Every chess piece is hand turned on a wood lathe using traditional methods and tooling. The Knights are hand carved using traditional methods and great care is put into the details of every piece that finds its way onto a chess board. We stock functional tournament chess pieces, economy chess pieces and limited edition luxury chess pieces.

No chess piece is at home without a chess board!

Of course every chess piece needs a home! And we bring the best chess boards from the best manufacturers in Europe. Whether you are buying a chess board to fit into a small space, or an oversized chess board to cover an entire coffee table, we are sure to have the best choice for you. Our veneer chess boards are manufactured exclusively in Europe and our solid wood boards in India. Both styles of chess board have been crafted with care and skill and provide the perfect surface for playing a game of chess or displaying chess pieces.
