Special thanks to "Michael Ladzinski" for his phenomenal efforts in making this dream chess set a reality.

Now we've something new for chess collectors community. Presenting you the limited edition of Romanian-Hungarian National Tournament Chess Set. Our reproduction of Romanian-Hungarian chess set received an overwhelming response but some collectors felt that the knight in our repro was a little bit inaccurate and so, like always, we heard to our customers opinion and respected their verdict by bringing a closest possible knight in this limited edition chess set. The King proudly stands at 3.85" tall with a base diameter of 1.57". The dark chess pieces are made of stained crimson boxwood. The opposing pieces are made of 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. The stained crimson Romanian-Hungarian National Tournament Chess Set is simply gorgeous and exquisitely striking, therefore each piece is carved with meticulous care.

Other variants are also available at our web store. Shop Here

The set comes with free extra queens for effortless pawn promotion. All chess pieces are expertly carved and weighted for fantastic hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board. 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. 

This chess set is reproduced in collaboration with "Michael Ladzinski", one of the greatest chess collectors in the chess world. This popular set is the rage of tournament players in Hungary and Romania. Its refreshing to see these style pieces used in place of the mundane FIDE golden rosewood pieces in the Hungarian and Romanian tournaments. A great set for tournament, blitz or home play and a "must have" set for any chess collector.

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.

Felts: Thick green felt precisely envelops the base of each chessmen.

Weights: The set is weighted and so they are pleasure to hold and will last for years if maintained properly in a dry and clean place.

In-Box items: Retail Package consists of 34 Chessmen only.

Caution: These chess pieces are neither waterproof nor UV-resistant
