Our Pieces have been Lacquer finished in Ivory White and Crimson Red as a reproduction of the Precious Ivory Sets.
The styling of each of the Leuchars Cook Chess pieces follows a certain defined grammar. The King is represented by his crown, The Queen, by her coronet. The Bishops wear distinctive miters with deep clefts. The Knights – generally considered the showstoppers among all Chessmen – have flared nostrils and high crowned manes. The Castles look solid, as they should, with widely crenulated battlements, while the pawns are topped by a plain ball.
They will find great favour with chess players, collectors and hobbyist for their distinctive looks, for the heft and solidity of their feel, for their stability which comes from their wide and weighted bases, and from the felt-lined bottoms of their bases, which create an illusion that they are floating on the Chessboard.
