This unique and popular chess set package includes our Zagreb series chess set with ebonized and natural boxwood pieces matched with The Queen's Gambit Chess Board. Our Zagreb 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. This is a tournament size set with a 3.875" tall king and a base diameter of 1.625". The pieces have thick green baize pads, so they slide smoothly across the chess board and are heavily weighted for stability.
Our Tiger Ebony and Maple Deluxe Chess Board is made for us by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain, the world's most renowned chess board manufacturer. This chess board features striped ebony, also known as tiger ebony which has irregular black and brown stripes similar to that of a tiger. This makes a spectacular back drop for the ebonized and boxwood pieces. A triple inlay (white-black-white) pinstripe around the playing area along with an extra wide frame gives the chess board an elegant look. The chess board is sealed in a polyurethane finish that both protects and enhances the natural beauty of the wood. Made from the finest veneer available, the precise inlay work by the craftsmen of Rechapados Ferrer is simply unsurpassed. The Zagreb and this chess board together not only offer an excellent set for playing a competitive game of chess, but the heirloom quality of the pieces will add interest and beauty to your home décor.
