Our Cambridge Springs Antique Reproduction Chess Set is a reproduction of the pieces used in the 1904 Cambridge Springs International Chess Congress; the first international chess tournament held in America in the twentieth century. These attractive and stout pieces, ideal for competitive chess, were every bit worthy of a such a prominent event. These are ebonized and natural boxwood pieces with a traditional polished lacquer finish. The king is 4" tall king with a 1.75" wide base and are heavily weighted for exceptional balance and stability on the chess board. The pieces have thick green baize pads for a soft feel on the chess board and we include two extra queens for pawn promotion. Whether you are a collector or looking for one special chess set, the nostalgia the Cambridge Springs invokes will add enjoyment to every game you play.
