Reproduced 1959 Russian Zagreb Series chess set in Staunton style is made up of ebonized boxwood and natural boxwood. The King proudly stands at 4.1 inches and its base is a robust 1.7 inches. Wider base and superb size proportioning from the king to the pawn exhibits true intricate craftsmanship in all the pieces. Along with the unique long, downward-pointing head of the knight, what makes this reproduction so unique is how it feels in your hand. The set is entirely handmade in India and weighted for prodigious hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board.

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. The set comes with free extra queens for effortless pawn promotion. All chess pieces have billiard board green felt pads on their bases which give you the smooth movement on the chess board. 

History: In the 1950s and 1960s the Zagreb chess set was one of the most popular chess sets used at the major international chess tournaments. It gained popularity when it was used in the World Championship Candidates Match that was held in Bied, Zagreb in 1959.

Beautiful! Review by Northman
The online pictures don't really give a good sense of the pieces.
I opened the very well wrapped set and was quite surprised at the size and weight of the pieces and was equally surprised by the quality of the finish. Thank you for an excellent product and timely shipping.( Ordered Monday ,arrived Friday ,Minnnesota). (Posted on 2/25/2018)
An awesome quality 'Zagreb' style chest Review by Savvy
My first purchase from ChessBazaar, and I have to say I couldn't be more pleased. The delivery of the Chess pieces was very quick and the packaging and packing of the Chess Pieces themselves was outstanding (each piece individually wrapped in protective foam!) ... now to the pieces themselves, they truly are superb. Heavily weighted and beautifully crafted and finished. The attention to detail is truly amazing. A Good match for a 60mm playing size square board I have (also suits a 55mm square). A highly recommended purchase if you are looking for both a bit of history and a quality set for regular play. According to my wife the Chess pieces are beautiful to both look at and hold! (she is very picky, so if it meets her expectations then it must be good!) (Posted on 7/11/2017)
