Description

THE CHESSMEN

"An exact reproduction of one of the most historically important Chess sets ever produced, the Chess set used in the legendary 1972 World Chess Championship, featuring Robert J. (Bobby) Fischer (USA) and Boris Spassky (RUS)."

The House of Staunton is proud to offer the The Gothic Edition - Reykjavik II Chess Set - 3.75 inch King. A full tournament-sized Chess set, it features a 3.75" King with a 1.6" diameter base. The Chess pieces are hand carved by our master artisans and crafted out of the highest grade woods. The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a beautiful finish. The design of the Reykjavik II Chess set is an exact reproduction of the Chess set used by the legendary American Grandmaster Bobby Fischer when he won the 1972 World Chess Championship against the reigning World Champion Grandmaster Boris Spassky in Reykjavik, Iceland. The Chess set has been designed to withstand years of use (and abuse), as it lacks many of the ornate details commonly found on Chess Sets that can be susceptible to damage in the heat of battle. For example, the Chess set features reinforced Pawn collars and oversized Rook ramparts for unmatched durability. The Reykjavik II Series Chess set is ideal for those that are interested in both the historical importance of the game of Chess, as well as those looking for an attractive Chess set that is both economical and durable.

 

As with all of our Chess sets, the Reykjavik II Series Chessmen exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality. It has been designed to withstand the rigors of practical play while maintaining an elegance which has become the hallmark of a House of Staunton chess set. The design, quality and craftsmanship of this set is UNMATCHED by any set of Chessmen in its price range. Nothing even comes close! 

 

The Chessmen are new and each set consists of 42 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton over 10 years ago.

 

THE CHESSBOARD

The Gothic Edition Wooden Tournament Chessboard with 2.25" Squares features Mahogany (dark) and Maple (light) squares with a Mahogany frame and rank/file labels. To accommodate Gothic Chess, the Chessboard is non-standard sized with 10 squares x 8 squares. This European-crafted Chessboard is 0.5" thick, has a satin finish.

 

THE CHESSBOX

The Slide Top Chess Box is the most economical way to protect your chessmen. It comes with a removable green pillow lining that allows it to hold chess sets of various sizes, from a 3.0” king height to a 4.4” king height. It also features a slide top lid, green velour lining and two divided storage compartments. Includes removable Green "Pillows" for each of the divided compartments that will allow it to safely store small Chess sets. The House of Staunton Logo has been silk screened on the lid in gold. This item can also be personalized for gift giving.
