All chess pieces are expertly carved and appropriately weighted for fantastic hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board. Pieces precisely envelops the base for smooth contact and movement on the chess board. 

Origin: This Fascinating FIDE chess set was designed by internationally renowned Pentagram designer and architect Daniel Weil. Originally set was used during the iconic World Chess Championship match in 2013(Chennai), when Magnus Carlsen used the pieces to defeat Vishwanathan Anand and become the 16th World Champion. The second match between Carlsen and Anand which took place in Sochi Russia(2014) was also played using the Fascinating set. During the Championship match, the set was paired with the electronic DGT equipments. The very first Staunton chess set was designed by Nathaniel Cook and later was endorsed by English Chess Champion, Howard Staunton in 1849. Since then, the design has gone through many iterations but Piatigorsky is one of the best chess set ever designed in the Staunton style. These pieces are based on the proportions of classical Greek architecture and the Staunton design to give both modern and traditional touch.

Craftsmanship: Pieces are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade wood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long-lasting shine. The design, quality, and craftsmanship of these chess pieces are impeccable.

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.

These grandeur chess pieces are undoubtedly an excellent choice for the chess tournaments, clubs or schools. 

Package Includes: 34 Chessmen(2 extra queens included). Chess board is not included.

Disclaimer: Product color may slightly vary due to photographic lighting sources or your monitor settings.

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

Customer Reviews
Excellent!!! Review by RJ
I have been collecting chess sets of various styles such as the French Lardy, the German knight, all from reputable sellers (and not so bargain prices). This set at least is the equal of any I have purchased so far and the price is better! Shipping is as promised.
The set itself is beautifully crafted and an excellent replica. Highly recommend this seller. (Posted on 12/24/2018)
