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.

Absolutely happy with the set. Perfctly manufactured and carefully lacquered. Packaging must not be neglected, the set arrives in perfect conditions. Thank you.
First off, Royal Chess Mall has provided great customer service throughout the purchasing process. The Leuchar chess design is my favorite. This set is a great size and has decent weight. The pieces also have excellent color and the finish is superb! The only reason for the nearly perfect review is that although the lacquer finish is beautiful it chips very easily. I had a few pieces with minor chips just from transport. This is no fault of RCM as they packaged very well, but maybe they need to find a way to make paint more durable. Overall highly recommend!! Thanks RCM!!!
Product as advertised, excellent service and quick delivery. Very satisfied customer.
