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. 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 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.

Black/White & Brown/White variants are also available at our web store.

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

Kudos to Vik and the ChessBazaar team for this magnificent Romanian-Hungarian Tournament Set reproduction. An appealing and unique design set for collectors and tournament players alike. Also for those looking for an appealing alternative to the Staunton design. Its an exact reproduction of the original sets used in Romanian and Hungarian National tournaments, These unique pieces are gorgeous in every way. Awesome hand carved knights with uniquely styled Bishops with opposite color finials. . Refreshing designed Kings and Queens. The Rooks and Pawns are quite pleasing. A "must have" set for collectors and tournament players. I highly recommend this charming set. This set is a perfect reproduction of the original sets and now at my suggestion have made this set even better with WIDER base Kings and Queens.. Many thanks to Vik and Sapna for making this gorgeous reproduction at my request.
This set comes in many woods and stains, but I have to tell you the Lacquered finish is amazingly gorgeous. With that in mind, Vik and Sapna, how about making this set with a black Lacquer finish?
