This unique chess set includes our Zagreb Series chess pieces handcrafted from golden rosewood and boxwood matched with our Walnut and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board. This design became prominent in the 1950’s when it was first used in the World Championship Candidates Match held in Zagreb, Yugoslavia in 1959. Distinguished by its uniquely shaped knight and opposite color finials, it has been a favorite with players for decades. This is a thirty-four-piece set that includes two extra queens for pawn promotion. The king is 3.25”-tall with a base of 1.375”, an ideal size for casual chess games at home. Pieces are heavily weighted for exceptional stability and 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 Walnut and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board from Rechapados Ferrer combines classic design with elegant features to create an eye-catching battle field for your chess game. This is an inlaid chess board handcrafted from high quality walnut and maple veneer and sealed with a polyurethane finish that both protects and enhances the beauty of the wood. A wide and colorful burl wood delimiter accentuates the playing field while the black stained molded edge highlights the entire board. The squares are 1.75” and the footprint of the board is 19.5” square. Four felt pads on the bottom will protect whatever furniture the board sets on.
