We are pleased to announce the impeccable CB Red Rum luxury series chess set, exquisitely made up of bud rosewood and natural boxwood. The King proudly stands at 4.4 inches and its base is robust 1.9 inches. This is a classic design featuring the magnificent and robust knight. 

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 for luxury chess sets. 

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. The set comes with free extra queens for effortless pawn promotion. All chess pieces are expertly carved and triple weighted for fantastic hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board. King, Queens, Bishops and Pawns have unique collar rings and thick green felts, which precisely envelops the base of each chess men 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.

Craftsmanship: The carving of the knight is quite spectacular, look closely at the eyes, nostrils, teeth and, uniformity around the mane. The design of the other pieces is also highly commended to allow the set to truly stand out. They are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade bud rosewood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long lasting shine. Each chessmen is carefully hand crafted in India with dainty details. Superb size proportioning from king to the pawn exhibits true intricate craftsmanship in all the pieces. The design, quality, and craftsmanship of these chess pieces is comparable to the luxury chess sets that are sold for $700+ by other retailers.

Design Inspiration: The reigning Red Rum was the only horse in the history of the Aintree Grand National to win the race three times in 1973, 1974 and 1977. Red Rum was the only one who achieved an unmatched historic treble when he came second in the two intervening years (1975 & 1976). Despite the fact that "The Grand National" is a notoriously difficult race and described as "the ultimate test of a horse’s courage". He was also renowned for his jumping ability, having not fallen in 100 races. There's no doubt that Red Rum was one of the best horses ever stepped into "The Grand National". Inspired by the famous horse Red Rum, our Red Rum Series personifies the legacy of the Red Rum horse. The uniformity in mane and a distinctive head shape of the knight represent the Red Rum horse in full gallop. 

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.

All chess pieces have an elegant visual appeal that blends well for permanent display on a cocktail table. Matching chess board for these pieces is available at our web store at extra cost. Shop Here

Fabulous! Review by Kleverton
Fabulous! A perfect set of chess pieces. All the pieces are in perfect harmony, from the pawn to the king.

The knights are magnificent, a true work of art. When buying, choose lacquer lacquer application, as well as protecting, will prevent parts from getting dark with use.

The weight of the parts is pleasant, being comfortable to handle.

Congratulations to CHESSBAZAAR. (Posted on 7/26/2018)
Absolutely fantastic set - every bit as good as the website pics promised. Review by Dr_J
My Red Rum set arrived today, and in absolutely A1 condition, no problems at all - all securely packaged and arriving safely. The pieces are well colour matched, the bud rose pieces a lovely dark and consistent tone, and the boxwood pieces are very consistent too.

The carving of the knights is superb - very consistent and just as good as the photos. The pieces have a good solid weight - the bud rose pieces are slightly heavier, particularly the pawns, but that's as would be expected, and does not detract from the playing pleasure.

I paid the small additional charge for the lacquer finish and this is well worth it - it is well applied, not at all gloopy or overdone, and will both stop the bud rose pieces oxidising and will also prevent drying and shrinking, which should protect from cracking down the line (as much as can be expected).

I paired the set with the 60mm red ash burl board, and it's a fantastic combination with enough contrast to provide a good playing combination, but looking like a unified, luxury set.

As for the Red Rum set design - I spent many hours choosing my set, and feel my patience has been rewarded. i think it's one of the few luxury sets that retains a really elegant simplicity and doesn't look 'over-designed' - particularly the knights, but also the other pieces. All of the pieces are in perfect proportion, none look slightly out of place or lacking in some important detail (unlike in some other sets), and the weighty rooks provide good contrast to the slim 'decanter' shape of other pieces and so brings clarity to a busy board - it's a real player's set.

The delivery (3-4 working days to the UK) and comms with the sales people, who answered my inquiries efficiently and knowledgeably, were first rate. Tracked at every step of the way by DHL and with me in well under a working week.

Genuinely couldn't be happier with my purchase, particularly for the price I paid for this outstanding set. Thank you Chess Bazaar! (Posted on 7/10/2018)
