The Zukert is our largest and heaviest plastic chess set with a 4.25" tall king. While not not meant to be an exact replica, the Zukert was inspired by the Zukertort, an original Jaques of London chess set from the mid 1800s named for the Grand Master Johannes Zukertort. The Zukert's knight with its old world nostalgic look is what distinguishes this set from others. We simply refined and accentuated its features to create a new and unique design. We applied this principal to all six chess pieces creating a chess set that is truly a master piece. If you are looking for an large plastic chess set with a unique design and exceptional features, the Zukert will not disappoint!
