Why This Chess Set?

This beautiful "Joc Catalan chess set" was introduced at the Barcelona International Chess Tournament in 1930. This chess set was named as Catalan Set. Unfortunately 5 years thereafter, the civil war cut short all Catalan cultural movements, activities and crafts, including Art Nouveau. It is unknown as to how many chess sets were originally made but as close to nothing of those sets exist now, it is believed that perhaps this number was not huge.

Disclaimer: It is believed by some researchers that the set was designed by famous architect Antonio Gaudi, however, some including Gaudi scholars refute this claim. 

We at chessbazaar have done our best to reproduce the Catalan Chess Set as per the specifications, design and size of the original chess set. We have made this wonderful chess set available to chess lovers at the most affordable prices. We have kept the design of the set as close to the original as possible.

All in all the bottom line is that this magnificent chess set should be in every serious collector's collection.

 

Package Includes : 34 Chessmen(2 extra queens included). chess board NOT included in this sale.
