This special chess set includes our Reykjavik Series chess pieces handcrafted from genuine ebony and boxwood matched with our Deluxe Two Drawer Elm Burl and Bird's-Eye Maple Chess Case. The Reykjavik draws inspiration from the chess set used by the legendary American Grandmaster Bobby Fischer when he beat reigning world champion and Grandmaster Boris Spassky in the 1972 World Chess Championship in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is a thirty-four-piece set that includes two extra queens for pawn promotion. The ebony and boxwood pieces are lacquer polished to a lustrous finish. The king is 3.75" tall with a base diameter of 1.625", the perfect size for tournament chess games. Heavily weighted for exceptional stability, the pieces have thick green baize pads for a soft cushion on the chess board. We include a Certificate of Manufacturer so you will always know what the pieces are, when they were made, and where they came from.

Our Deluxe Two Drawer Elm Burl and Bird's-Eye Maple Chess Case seamlessly combines functionality with elegance, offering a chess board and storage for chess pieces all in one. Handcrafted from solid wood, its exterior boasts graceful curves adorned with a three-row beaded section around the top and a refined molded edge beneath. The chess board, featuring high-quality elm burl and bird’s-eye maple veneer, is accented by a decorative black delimiter highlighting the playing area. The chess board has two-inch squares and the case an overall footprint of nineteen inches square. A drawer on each player’s side completely pulls out to make it easy to put pieces in and take them back out. Each drawer has sixteen individual compartments lined with a soft velour fabric to protect each piece. Whether proudly displaying your chess pieces or neatly stowing them away, this stunning case elevates any room's ambiance with its timeless beauty and functional design.
