Discover the exquisite craftsmanship of The Blackburne Ebony Chess Men, a prestigious addition to The Regency Chess Company's wide selection. With their flawless carving, stunning details, and billiard cloth bases, each piece is expertly crafted and perfectly weighted. These magnificent chessmen, named after the famous Joseph Henry Blackburne, stand at a massive 4.5 inches. Despite only learning chess at 17 or 18, Blackburne quickly rose to become a formidable player, defeating Manchester's strongest player just a month after his debut. He even mastered the art of blindfold chess, playing against multiple opponents at once. His innovative spirit even led to the creation of chess clocks.

This iconic set is fit for a champion, with its jet black anegre and maple battlefield. The board, expertly crafted by Rechapados Ferrer S.A. of Spain, features a high grade veneer construction and a luscious deep gloss lacquer finish that showcases the stunning contrast of the dark anegre and light maple squares. The ample size of 23.6 inches (60 cm) and 60 mm square size make it perfect for the deluxe chess men and creates a truly striking and timeless chess set. The prestigious chess player, known as "The Black Death" due to his fierce skills, would surely approve. Don't miss out on this grand chess set that was even featured on ITV news.
