The reproduced 1946 Issac Lipnitsky Berlin tournament chess pieces are meticulously carved by our most experienced craftsman in ebonized boxwood. The King proudly stands at 4.0" tall with a base diameter of 1.7". The opposing pieces are made of boxwood which is traditionally used for the white side. The most intriguing thing about this set is the bases of the chessmen, with the king base dia and the rook base dia at 1.7". Even the bell-shaped pawn's base dia is 1.7" which is around 40% more than the traditional 4" king height pawn. The chess pieces are weighted by the iron studs and are double-weighted so that it doesn't tip over easily and are comfortable to slide on the chessboard. The set comes with free extra queens for effortless pawn promotion. The chessman has been reproduced in collaboration with Mike Ladzinski.
