This chess set includes our Dubrovnik Championship Series chess set with genuine ebony and boxwood pieces matched with our Mahogany and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board and Classic Mahogany Chess Box. This wonderful chess set is an exact replica of the one used in 1970s-era Dubrovnik Chess Olympiad in Siegen, West Germany. This wonderful Staunton pattern was made popular by the legendary Bobby Fischer, who was often photographed playing with his own set. This is a full tournament-sized set that features a 3.9" King with a 1.625" diameter base. The Chess pieces are hand carved by our master artisans one piece at a time. The obsidian black ebony and boxwood pieces are hand polished to a shiny luster. The chess pieces are heavily weighted have thick green baize pads for a soft feel on chess board. The unique design, quality and craftsmanship of this chess set is simply unmatched.

Our Mahogany and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board is made for us by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain, the largest manufacturer of high quality chess boards in the world. The board features a black molded edge with an extra-wide border and a wide black delimiter highlighting the squares. Made with the finest mahogany and maple veneer, the precision inlay work by the craftsmen is remarkable. The entire board is finished in semi-gloss polyurethane to seal and protect the wood. The squares are 2.125" and the overall size of the board is 21.5" and .5" thick. The bottom of the board has felt pads to protect whatever surface it sets on. Our Classic Mahogany Chess Box is has two compartments and is lined with thick green baize to protect the piece. It has lustrous brass hardware and latches closed with a key.
