The Bold difference

Customise your pieces with Pantone or RAL colours

Purling Bold series pieces are hewn from Boxwood
(a hardwood) inspired by traditional Staunton design and featuring Purling’s unique Knight design.

Customise your chess board with a plaque

The pieces are hand painted, finished and assembled in London, England. Each piece is coated with two layers of base coat primer, two layers of high gloss paint and two coats of high strength lacquer, to produce a deep glossy, satisfying and durable finish for added protection.

Our knight piece is uniquely Purling

Each piece has a beautiful Italian Nappa leather base felt, featuring The Purling logo embossed in 18 carat gold.
