This is for all you chess enthusiasts out there.

The narrator of SevenX, Alan Dewey (Chessspy), besides being a champion chess player, is also a Master Restorer of chess sets and has accomplished this task for some very high end players around the world. From time to time I will be inserting his emails to me because I find them interesting.

I hope you do also.



I have seen this on occasion, where someone in the past fixed their Queens rather cleverly. I assume the crenellations on one or both were broken, so they were filed down entirely. It doesn’t look bad, but it is wrong. These I am showing you here have come into the workshop to be retrofitted back into proper queens with crens.
