Features: Reproduced Dubrovnik weighted chess pieces with a 3.6" King and base diameter of 1.6". Chess pieces are Double Weighted and have thick green felt on their bases for smooth movement on the chess board. The dark chess pieces are made of Sheesham Wood and the lighter chess pieces are made in Boxwood.

Design & Quality: Handcrafted in India, these chess pieces exude class and history. Appropriately weighted these pieces are very stable on board and a pleasure to touch and feel. Each piece is meticulously carved and buff polished by hand to give it a rich and long-lasting shine. The design, quality, and craftsmanship of these chess pieces are unmatched and that is what made them favorite with the greatest chess player of all time, Bobby Fischer. When it comes to pleasure of holding a nicely weighted and crafted chess set, no other chess set comes even close to Dubrovnik Wooden Chess Pieces. To make the Dubrovnik chess set what it is, our artisans take more than two days to a carve a single chess set. The result of this hard work of these master craftsmen is a truly wonderful design and a masterpiece which any connoisseur will admire.

We have incorporated the following changes in this design:

- Instead of 5, there are 4 cuts in the turrets of the rook.

The 1950 Dubrovnik Chess Set: 

There used to be the greatest chess player of all time, Robert James "Bobby" Fischer and there used to be one of his all-time favorite chess set. It was called "The 1950 Dubrovnik chess set". In a radio interview, Bobby Fischer stated, "This (1950 Dubrovnik chess set) is the best chess set I have ever played on, it is marvelous." Interestingly there seemed to be some thief who loved this chess set even more than Bobby Fisher and Bobby Fishers original chess set was stolen. On Bobby Fishers special request a chess collector provided this chess set for the 1992 Fischer–Spassky rematch held at Sveti Stefan.

1950 Dubrovnik chess set was first seen in the 9th Chess Olympiad organized by the FIDE and the government of Yugoslavia. The Olympiad was held in Dubrovnik, Croatia between August 20 and September 11, 1950. This Olympiad had 84 chess players representing 16 nations who played a total of 480 games. 

This chess set was designed without any religious symbols, without the king crown or bishop mitres.The pieces were designed specifically for play and had wide bases and the pieces required a chess board with minimum 45 mm squares. They were thick green felted but were non-weighted

Approximately 50 chess sets were made, so the original sets are extremely rare and expensive to buy for chess collectors. Chessbazaar presents the reproduction 1950 Dubrovnik chess set where we have made this wonderful chess set available to chess lovers at most affordable prices. We have kept the design of the set as close to the original as possible but we have weighted it to make up for the shortcoming in the original design.

This magnificent chess set should be in every serious collector's collection.

Note: Original Dubrovnik chess pieces were non-weighted. Commercially available 1970 chess set (used by Bobby Fischer) design is slightly changed from the actual 1950 Dubrovnik but the difference is not hugely noticeable. The actual 1950 Dubrovnik Olympiad chess set was never sold in any store.

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
