The Regency Chess Company proudly presents The Blackburne Padauk Chess Men, a magnificent addition to our extensive range. Skilled craftsmen have expertly turned and carved these pieces to perfection, resulting in exquisite detailing. The commanding King stands tall at 4.5 inches and each piece is thoughtfully weighted and finished with billiard cloth bases. The knights, in particular, showcase impressive ornateness. These stunning pieces are made with Padauk wood, known for its strength, durability, and striking appearance. Most commonly found in Africa, Padauk wood starts off as a vibrant red/orange and gradually turns into a warm brown under sunlight. With its vibrant color and natural beauty, Padauk wood is a beloved choice among woodworkers. At Regency Chess, we believe that Padauk adds a special touch to our luxury chess sets.

Discover the incredible story behind the stunning Blackburne Padauk and Briarwood luxury chess set. Named after the legendary Joseph Henry Blackburne, these exquisite pieces pay tribute to his iconic chess career. Despite starting at the age of 17 or 18, Blackburne quickly rose to fame in the chess world, even defeating Manchester's strongest player, Eduard Pindar. He was known for his impressive blindfolded chess skills, often playing against three opponents simultaneously. Blackburne's passion for the game even led to the introduction of chess clocks. This set includes a high-quality Italian made briarwood and elm veneer chess board, with a glossy lacquered finish that showcases the alluring wood grain and knotting. The ebony border adds a touch of elegance, while the underside of the board is lined with felting pads for surface protection. Perfectly suited for the Blackburne Padauk chessmen, this board is a must-have for any passionate chess player.
