This unique and popular chess set package includes our Yugoslavia Staunton with genuine ebony and natural boxwood pieces matched with our Deluxe Walnut 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. Ebony is one of the hardest woods in the world with no visible grain and when polished produces a chess piece with a glass-like obsidian luster. 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. The Yugoslavia has been favorite with chess players for decades and continues to be one of our most popular chess sets.
The rich brown color of the walnut and maple chess board make a wonderful backdrop against the obsidian black ebony and cream-colored boxwood pieces. Made for us by Rechapados Ferrer, this is an inlaid chess board made from the finest walnut and maple veneer and sealed with a semi-gloss polyurethane finish to protect the wood. The precision of the inlay work is remarkable. The chess board has 2.125" squares accentuated by elegant triple inlay delimiter and surrounded by an extra wide frame. The overall size of the board is 21.5" and is .5" thick. Whether a collector or you're looking for a special set for your games at home, the Yugoslavia will add enjoyment to every game you play.
