I am thrilled to announce that I am relaunching my Rocket Chess Set. And it’s all thanks to a bar mitzvah boy in Australia…
The concept for this collector’s chess set originally came through a commission from a private customer and my fascination with space travel inspired the design. The set was intricate and very challenging to make, but I loved the result so much that I produced a limited set to add to my range.
The chess sets quickly sold out. Due to the time constraints of designing and running my business, it remained out of stock for several years. That was until I received an email from the mother of a bar mitzvah boy who said: “Our son chose your stunning Rocket Chess Set as a special ‘Forever Gift’ for his bar mitzvah. We asked all those who wished to give him a gift, to make a contribution to his chess set fund … The idea was extremely popular with our friends as it means he will have something which is not only beautiful, useful, and enduring but also significant, as a reminder of his big day. My son loves space, engineering, and chess so it is a perfect gift that he will keep and admire for many years, and then hopefully pass on to his children. We plan on arranging a plaque engraved with the names of all those who contributed.”
With a request like that, I knew I had to put the Rocket Chess Set back into production. Once again, though, I will only produce a limited number. If you are interested in purchasing one of these rare chess sets, please get in touch to secure yours.
