Product Description

THE CHESSMEN:

"With a distinct European flair and styling, a stunning reproduction of one of the most popular chess sets used in the major international Chess tournaments during the 1950s and 1960s."

The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Zagreb '59 Series Chess set. 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 boxwood that has been burnt and carved to achieve this gorgeous effect. The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a glossy finish to further accentuate the details. The design of the Zagreb '59 Chess set is an adaptation of the most popular Chess set used at major international Chess tournaments throughout the 1950s and 1960s, most notably the World Championship Candidates Match that was held in Bied, Zagreb in 1959.

As with all of our Chess sets, the Zagreb '59 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!
