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". The dark chess pieces are made of Sheesham wood. 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. 

Red/White & Black/White 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.

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 hansd 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 tournamnet players. I highly recommend this charming set. This set is a perfect reproduction of the original sets. Many thanks to Vik and Sapna for making this gorgeous reproduction at my request. Even though this is a perfect reproduction, I would like to see ChessBazaar make it even better with wider diameter bases for the Kings and Queens and make the pieces with heavier weights. These suggestions will make the set even better and great for speed and blitz play.. Take it from me, you will love this set! (Posted on 7/9/2017)
