    Description

    The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Moscow 1935 Series Chess set from the Camaratta Collection. A full tournament-sized Chess set, it features a 5.0" King with a 1.7" 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 on the pieces and a beautiful finish.

    As with all of our Chess sets, the Moscow 1935 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.

    History of the Chess Pieces

    Reproduction Moscow 1935 Chessmen

    The reproduction of the Moscow 1935 Chessmen have now joined the Camaratta Signature Line. These pieces are based on the chessmen memorialized in images of the game between Salo Flohr and Mikhail Botvinnik in the 1935 Moscow International Tournament. Each set of the Reproduction Moscow1935 Chessmen reproduction has a  tournament-size King, equivalent to a Normal 4.0” tall  Staunton Set with a conventional Formeé cross finial, The King has a 1-3/4” diameter base. Typical of many Soviet era chessmen designs, the Bishops lack miter cuts.  The stately Rook projects the proper stature for a major piece on the chessboard. The Knight is particularly well carved,  a finely balanced design that is aggressive, but not visually overwhelming. The set comes standard with the elongated Eastern teardrop-style pointed King’s finial which belie its true comparative height. Also included are an extra pair of Queens to facilitate Pawn Promotion, a feature pioneered by us in 1995. The Reproduction Moscow 1935 Chessmen are designed for play or display on chessboard with 2-1/4” squares.

    Some Background

    Moscow 1935 was the second international chess tournament held in Moscow, taking place from 15 February to 15 March 1935. Salo Flohr and future world champion Mikhail Botvinnik tied for first, followed by former world champions Emanuel Lasker and José Raúl Capablanca. The single round-robin tournament was organized along the lines of Moscow 1925, with twelve Soviet players and eight international players.

    Salo Flohr (Czechoslovakia) was internationally renowned and considered a world championship contender. Later, Flohr would be in the inaugural group to receive the grandmaster title when it was introduced by FIDE in 1950. Mikhail Botvinnik (Soviet Union) was known as a rising star at age 24 and two years earlier had drawn a match with Flohr. He would later become world champion in 1948.

    Emanuel Lasker (Germany) and José Raúl Capablanca (Cuba) were former world champions. At age 66, Lasker was undefeated, beating Capablanca in their individual game and finishing third, a half point ahead of Capablanca in fourth place. Reuben Fine hailed Lasker’s result at age 66 as “a biological miracle.”
