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 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". Dark chess pieces are exquisitely crafted in bud rosewood. Because of its rarity, bud rosewood chess pieces are the primary choice of many chess enthusiasts. Bud rosewood is an alluring wood and probably the most admired wood around.

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. For superior protection against scratches and dirt, we've shielded the pieces with buff-polish instead of lacquer finish. Romanian-Hungarian National Tournament Chess Set in bud rosewood is simply gorgeous and exquisitely striking, therefore each piece is carved with meticulous care.

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

Pleasure to play with Review by Mel
First, I want to say thank you to Mayank for working with me on using the Chessbazaar layaway service. It made it possible to own this set.

The pictures truly do not do justice to the fine wood grain, and natural burgundy-red color of the pieces. They just "feel" right from the very first game you play with them. I liked the set so much, I already put an order in for the sheesham version!

While one piece did come with a scratch, Chessbazaar customer service will be sending me a replacement with my next order. This speaks volumes about their customer service. (Posted on 7/16/2018)
Great customer service. Great looking chess set. Review by Richard - oldlefty
I ordered this set on December 26th and it was delivered on December 29th! Packaging was bullet-proof and there were no signs of damage, flaws or defects on any of the pieces. The set looks just like it does on the website. I am extremely pleased with my purchase and would not hesitate to do business with Chess Bazaar again. Chess Bazaar also deserves credit for putting out an admittedly quirky but very interesting looking set from the Soviet era. I doubt few other companies would. (Posted on 12/30/2017)
