The Purling London concept is contemporary, luxury Chess sets that contrast traditional hand-carved Staunton pieces against abstract, modern art and light. Our Art Chess products are individually hand painted by our specially commissioned British based contemporary artists including Olivia Pilling, Joanna Scislowicz and Richard Morrissey. Our Dark Chess products juxtaposition hand craftsmanship, bold colour and deep shadows whilst glowing with cutting-edge board technology. Every Purling London product is a professional grade 34 piece(1), 10. 2cm(2), triple weighted Chess set and is supplied complete with a certificate personally signed by the artist / designer.
