About Us

About Us

The Regency Chess Company was founded in 2008 by Julian Deverell in Frome, United Kingdom. Julian’s vision was to create a specialist chess retailer that offers only the finest products and presents them online in a way that customers can easily understand and compare. By combining skills in design, photography, and product sourcing, Regency Chess has crafted a clear and concise online shopping experience. This allows customers to select quality chess products with ease and confidence.

Julian Deverell

Julian spent much of 2007 traveling across Europe and Asia to seek out and establish relationships with top-tier chess manufacturers. By visiting each workshop in person, he ensured that only high-quality, well-made products are sold on the Regency Chess website. This hands-on approach guarantees that every supplier operates in a clean, honest, and fair manner without exploiting their craftspeople.

Our strong aesthetic sense is evident in both our website design and our product selection. Each chess set is chosen for its beauty and fine craftsmanship, reflecting our commitment to offering products that are both visually appealing and of superior quality.

Our Journey

Since its inception, Regency Chess has grown into a trusted name in the chess community. Julian’s dedication to sourcing the best products has led to a diverse range of chess sets, boards, and accessories. From classic Staunton designs to unique and ornate sets, our collection caters to both casual players and serious collectors.

Our Process

We carefully selected our suppliers to ensure ethical practices and high standards. Each product is photographed and described in detail to give customers a true sense of its quality and craftsmanship. This transparency helps customers make informed decisions and find the perfect chess set for their needs.
