In Somerset, England, Berkeley Chess designs and manufactures high quality theme chess pieces.

The Berkeley Chess collection formed to meet the demand among chess players together with their families and friends for a unique gift related to their hobby. Theme chess sets offer a perfect, complementary product which combines an interest in chess with that of history, literature, and occasionally whimsical subjects.

Aiming to provide competitively priced yet high quality pieces, Michael and his experienced team of specialists set up the factory in Somerset England.

We are pleased to introduce the Berkeley Chess line in September of 2017. Right now, if any designs are interesting to you, feel free to click the button to “email me when available” displayed on the page for that product.

Utilizing a careful process, this range of chess sets are stained in Cardinal (a contemporary red) and Russet (a contemporary brown). It’s then further stained to add an antique effect. This results in an aged beautiful set that is eye catching and really stands out. They are well weighted with an improved ratio of crushed marble and resin, and then finished with a felt underlay.

The chessboards photographed are for display and are not included in the price.

"What a beautiful selection. I had a difficult time choosing just one set! I decided upon a marble chess set that is gorgeous and which I was very excited to give it as a gift. I highly recommend Chess House for their product array as well as excellent customer service. My shipment arrived very well packed and damage-free."
