Now we've something new for chess collectors community. Presenting you the Romanian-Hungarian National Tournament Chess Set. Some chess collectors felt that the base of King & queen in our previous lot was inadequate, so we heard to our customer’s opinion and respected their verdict by increasing the base width of king & queen. The Wider base gives the better stability while playing speed chess. Now the King proudly stands at 3.85" tall with a base diameter of 1.57". The dark chess pieces are made of pitch black ebonized boxwood. The opposing pieces are made of natural boxwood which is traditionally used for white side. It is one of the fairly easy woods to work with and shows off aesthetic detail. They are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade wood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long lasting shine. For superior protection against scratches and dirt, we've shielded the pieces with buff-polish instead of lacquer finish.

King, Queens, Bishops, and Pawns have unique rings and thick green felts, which precisely envelops the base of each chessmen for smooth movement on the chess board. The Knights are well-crafted and represent the highest grade of knight carving skills that our Indian artisans have to offer.
The lathe work on the each chess piece is noteworthy, especially the elegant curves on Knights. There are 4 cuts in the turrets of the rook. Like the Russian/Soviet chess sets, the balls on the bishops are of opposite color. All chess pieces have a very wide base which adds another interesting dimension to the set.
