This unique and popular chess set package includes our Yugoslavia Staunton with ebonized boxwood and natural boxwood pieces matched with our Classic Mahogany and Maple Chess Board. Our Yugoslavia Staunton originates from the chess set designed for the 1950 Chess Olympiad held in Dubrovnik,Yugoslavia. This set stands out from other Staunton designs with its opposite color tops on the king, queen, and bishop and the unique and handsome knight with its graceful curves and down-turned head. The ebonized boxwood is jet black with no visible grain just like real ebony while the cream colored natural boxwood is the perfect wood for the white chess pieces. The pieces are individually hand polished and lacquered to a beautiful luster. The king is 3.25" tall and has a base diameter of 1.375" - an ideal size for the game at home. The pieces have thick green baize pads so they slide smoothly across the chess board and are heavily weighted for stability.
Our Classic Mahogany and Maple chess board is an excellent choice for matching with ebonized and boxwood chess pieces. The black pieces create a stunning contrast with the warm orange-brown color of the mahogany. This is an inlaid chess board with the finest wood veneers and is handcrafted to exacting standards. The board is sealed in a satin polyurethane finish to protect the wood. An extra wide frame adds substantial size to the chess board and provides enough room for sitting captured pieces while a black inlay border creates a sharp delineation surrounding the playing area. The squares are 1.75" and the board measures 17" overall. The Yugoslavia has been favorite with chess players for decades and continues to be one of our most popular chess sets.
