The New Imperial Knight Collection is a set of unique Ebony wood ornaments that make up a rare chess set. Each individual playing piece is instantly recognisable as an Imperial Knight, such is the strength of the set’s stylistic identity. The knight, for example, boasts elongated ears that are seen nowhere else in the Chess by India collection. His truncated mane is found elsewhere only in the luxury section.


This beauty of design is matched with a practicality that separates this set as remarkable. At 3.75 inches (98 mm) the tulip king is designed to fit effortlessly into a player’s hand, curving like an hourglass, with a gilded barrier three quarters of the way up, hand turned to rest a forefinger during play. The bishop, rook and queen share the king’s practical shape but on a less grand scale, each piece having its own interpretation of the Imperial Knight uniform.

The rook, especially, has been a subject of conversation since this ornate chess set was introduced.
