      About The Set:

      In the Autumn of 1952, in preparation for the Queens Coronation, the famous sculptor and Royal Academician James Woodford was called upon to create ten new beasts similar to the Kings Beasts at Hampton Court, these creatures stood six feet high and carved from stone to adorn Westminster Abbey for the event. They too, now reside at Hampton Court.

      This is certainly the largest and most incredibly impressive set that I currently make. In fact this is a very important set to me as this was the first set that my mother bought me way back when I was about 16 and the very reason that I became so fascinated with chess sets in the first place.

      These sets normally retail for well over $200!!

      Cast from reformed stone this truly is a heavy and sizable set and would look magnificent on display.

      The King is 6 and a half inches high and the set weighs approx. 4KG!

      The Set Itself:

      The White Side..

      King Lion of England
      Queen Unicorn of Scotland
      Knight White Horse of Hanover
      Bishop White Lion of Mortimer
      Castle Falcon of the Plantagents
      Pawn White Greyhound of Richmond

      The Black/Walnut Side..

      King Lion of England
      Queen Unicorn of Scotland
      Knight Yale of Beaufort
      Bishop Black Bull of Clarence
      Castle The Griffin of Edward III
      Pawn The Dragon of Wales

      Colors Available:

      The set shown is the Deep Walnut and Sandstone. You can also choose Antique Red or Jet Black for the dark side if you prefer. If you would like some other sort of color combination then just drop me a line and I'm sure I'll be able to accommodate you :)

      NOTE:

      And don't forget, you can create your own bespoke set put together using any of the pieces from any of the sets in my shop in any colors you like. A real mix and match. So, for example, if you would like an Isle of Lewis set but prefer the King from a different set and/or the pawns from another set then that's no problem. As long as I currently make the pieces you can create whatever set you like. Simply request a custom order with your requirements and I'll do my best to accommodate. ☺
