The set features a 3.89" King with a base diameter of 1.45 inches. The Bohemia Staunton Series is expertly weighted from our master artisans and it's superb size proportioning from a king to pawn make this chess set an excellent choice for the blitz play in chess tournaments/clubs or regular home and school play. This is an impeccable reproduction featuring the magnificently robust and so-called "dragon" Knights.

Chess Pieces Weight: 1000 grams approx. (35.27 oz). Please note that the weight in the set is added manually so the final weight of the set can vary by plus or minus (±) 10%.

Dark chess pieces are made up of Stained Crimson Boxwood and the opposing pieces are made up of boxwood(also available in sheesham variant) which is traditionally used for white side. It is one of the fairly easy woods to work with and shows off aesthetic detail. The set comes with free extra queens for effortless pawn promotion. All chess pieces are expertly carved and appropriately weighted for fantastic hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board. King, Queens, Bishops, and Pawns have unique collar rings and thick green felts, which precisely envelops the base for smooth contact and 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. 

Craftsmanship: The lathe work on each chess piece is noteworthy, especially the unique collar rings and unique Dubrovnik Chess Set like bishops. All chess pieces have a wide base which adds another interesting dimension to the set. The carving and the craftsmanship around the mane of the knight are quite spectacular and design of the knight is somewhat similar to our Reproduced Romanian-Hungarian National Tournament Chess Set,  The design of the other pieces is also highly outstanding that allows the set to truly stand out. Pieces are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade wood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long-lasting shine.

About Board: This beautiful Board is made of Bud Rose Wood on darker side and Box Wood on the lighter side. The size of the board is 18" x 18" (45.7 cm x 45.7 cm) with square size of 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" (45 mm x 45 mm). The board is 22 mm thick.

Chess Board Weight - 3000 grams (105.82 oz)

History: This chess set is also reproduced in collaboration with "Michael Ladzinski", one of the greatest chess collectors in the chess world. The 1950's vintage circa Bohemia German set was very popular in 1950's because of its fabulous design and its so-called "dragon" Knights. A later version of the 50's set was used at the 1970 Siegen Olympiad with less impressive "chicken head" Knights. Bobby Fischer played against Boris Spassky at the 1970 Siegen Olympiad with the later version Bohemia set. The original Chess Sets made by Bohemia are very rare and selling at thousands of dollars a set but that is not what every chess collector can spend on a hobby. 

Uniformity of pieces: The shapes of turned pieces are guided by metal profiles and so all turned pieces are identical, especially the pawns. You can expect some variation where hand carving or cutting comes i.e. knights.

Just like German Knight Tournament Chess Set, these grandeur chess pieces are undoubtedly an excellent choice for the blitz chess tournaments. Matching chess board for these pieces is available at our web store at extra cost. Shop Here

Package Includes : 34 Chessmen(2 extra queens included). Wooden board.
