The Queens Platinum Jubilee

This specially commissioned set, marking Her Majesty's glorious 70 year reign, is hand made in The United Kingdom by artisan craftsman, using the finest British materials and reflects the strength and dedication of service, given by Her Majesty to The United Kingdom and nations of The Commonwealth. Chess Board - The playing surface is made from hand carved squares of solid English Walnut & Sycamore, meticulously pieced together to provide a beautifully smooth finish, with each block measuring 5.5cm x 5.5cm to give a total playing area of 44cm x 44cm. The board's surface is also inlaid with a brushed steel plaque, featuring the Purling trademarked Crown logo.

The Queens Platinum Jubilee

The solid surround frame is also hewn from English Walnut and inlaid into the centre sides of the playing blocks, providing an innovative opening at the base, to allow the solid timbers to breathe, expand and contract, accommodating the differing and changing climate conditions a Purling set may find itself in across the globe. The total board measures 53cm x 53cm and creates a slight "floating" illusion. Chess pieces - Modelled on Purling's Heritage and Bold series of traditionally inspired Staunton designs and featuring our unique Knight design, the pieces are hand cast in England in brass and polished to a high level to deliver an incredibly smooth finish. One playing side is plated in Black Rhodium and the opposing side in Silver Rhodium, for a deeply satisfying weighted hand and visual appeal. (Rhodium is a member of the Platinum group of metals, underpinning our dedication to the reign of Her Majesty). Orders for further sets will be made on demand and can incorporate bespoke requirements, including hallmarking by The London Assay office for pieces cast in Silver, Gold and Rhodium.
