"An exquisite reproduction of the chessmen that were featured at the 17th Chess Olympiad in Havana, Cuba in 1966. At the conclusion of the event, the pieces were presented to the participants of the legendary event, which included World Champions including Fischer (USA) and Tal (Russia)."
The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Havana 1966 Commemorative Series Chess pieces. A full tournament-sized Chess set, it features a 3.875" King with a 1.75" 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 antiqued boxwood finish.
As with all of our Chess sets, the Havana 1966 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 34 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton in 1993.
