Handmade : The high skill of the designers, sculptors and craftsmen of Studio Anne Carlton shines through in our collection of UK handmade chess sets and European chess boards. The richness of finish and attention to detail contribute to the success of the beautiful products from the Studio Anne Carlton range, which are appreciated on five continents. The chess sets are mainly produced in two finishes made from crushed stone poly resin. Hand painted sets where only certain parts are colored by hand, whilst some areas remain plain, allowing for the natural material to be exposed after a light colored wash of paint.

Collector’s Item: Studio Anne Carlton, UK made, chess pieces are highly sought after in the collectible markets. The fact that these highly prized pieces are completely hand made makes volume production out of the question. Consequently many of the earlier and discontinued sets are returning substantial prices when appearing at auction. The sets are avidly collected.
