Another month went by and it was definitely dominated by new arrivals, so let’s recap some of the highlights of September month. Major announcements from last month were launching of new chessmen, Urban Street Art Chess Set, The Imperial Collector Series, Russian Antique Series and Reproduced 1925 – 1937 Staunton pattern chess pieces.
Here is a list of the hottest releases of Sep 2015.
First and foremost on the list is The Urban Street Art Chess Set in painted boxwood. Our latest offering is inspired from style of art that relates to cities and city life, often done by artists who live in or have a passion for city life. The flamboyant specks of different colors on the chess pieces depict the different races and cultures thriving in our Urban cities today. Each piece has been hand carved and sanded before being hand painted by our skilled artisans with auto grade paints which have a long life and are very durable. The king in the set stands 4.4″ high. The chess set comes with 34 pieces including 2 extra queens. This set is triple weighted and the chess pieces have thick green felt on their bases.
Reproduced Antique Russian Series Stained Chess pieces made the headlines as well, pieces are carved in stained box wood with the king height of 4.1″. Each chess piece is weighted by adding a stud of iron within the base.
And as long as we are on the subject of reproduced antique chess sets, the new “Reproduced 1925 – 1937 Staunton Pattern Design” is one that deserves some attention if you are a fan of 1849 chess set. Pieces are beautifully carved in ebony & box wood with the king height of 4.1″. The set is triple weighted and the chess pieces have thick green felt on their bases.
We have already extensively sold our reproduced imperial collector chess set(SKU: D0157) which was used in Sinquefield Cup 2014 & now we have launched that same chess set in 3.75″ tournament size. Appropriately weighted these pieces are very stable on board and a pleasure to touch and feel. Each piece is meticulously carved and buff polished by hand to give it a rich and long lasting shine.
