The Perfect Chess Set

This set was originally designed for the 1950 Chess Olympiad held in Dubrovnik,Yugoslavia and if I had to choose only one chess set for play it would be the ‘Zagreb’ set.  I have had mine for several years and it is the only one I use whether at home on my chess table or at the club.  It’s currently available on sale at The Chess Store for $69.95.  If you are looking for a nice wooden set, slightly unique but at the same time one that is acceptable for tournament play, this is the one!

  • Ebonized Boxwood & Boxwood
  • Pieces individually hand polished with solid lacquer and buffing wheel
  • King Height: 3.875"
  • King Base: 1.625"
  • King Weight: 3 oz.
  • Chess Set Weight: 56 oz.
  • 2 spare queens are included for pawn promotion
  • Green Billiard Cloth Pads
  • Recommended Chess Board Size: 2.125" - 2.25" Squares (not included)

  1. I love the size, weight and feel of this set and the price for a wood set is quite reasonable.
