Why The Empire Series?
Heart's Desire : Each piece of The Empire Series is a true value for the money. The chess pieces are hand-weighted, hand-polished and have leather base pads applied by the artisan himself, a very detailed and time-consuming process. We still weren’t satisfied. So we considered enhancing it. We identified a key way in which we could in order to ensure that each chess set that bears his name is as close to perfect as possible. Within the market, The Empire Series value for money chess sets have pieces that have been weighted with the most advanced weighting system technique. This technique allows us to achieve the same level of weighting with a minimum amount of material, thus eliminating the possibility of cracks.
