Reproduced 1959 Russian Zagreb Series chess set in Staunton style is made up of ebonized wood and natural boxwood. The King proudly stands at 3.8 inches and its base is a robust 1.6 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. 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.

Design & Quality:  

Appropriately weighted these pieces are very stable on board and a pleasure to touch and feel. Each piece is meticulously carved and polished by hand to give it a rich and long lasting shine. We polished them in high gloss lacquer which gives the chess pieces a smooth shining surface. The design, quality, and craftsmanship of these chess pieces are unmatched and that is what made them favorite of the masses. The result of this hard work of these master craftsmen is a truly wonderful design and a masterpiece which any connoisseur will admire.

The original Zagreb chess sets are selling at thousands of dollars, but that is not every what every chess collector can spend on a hobby. chessbazaar worked very hard to take out this repro design at very affordable price without compromising on quality so that every chess enthusiast can buy and admire the beauty of this chess set.

Package Includes : 34 Chessmen(2 extra queens included). chess board NOT included in this sale. 

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

I bought mine on a heavy discount and I'm very pleased with it. The finishing on the knights is slightly imperfect, but for the money I spent I'm not complaining. (Posted on 2/20/2018)
