Zagreb 4" & 55mm Mahogany Board

Product Code: 40001

Product Information

Whether you are looking to connect to the famous 1959 Candidates Tournament held in Zagreb or you want that gorgeous chess set to add intellectuality to your living room's décor, this set caters for both.

The chess pieces on display are a replica from the 1959 Zagreb tournament and are finely crafted by skilled artisans and handpolished to give them their sumptuous shine and lustre. But the real difference from the usual designs comes in form of elements of the opposing colour on the 4 highest pieces. This guarantees that those chess pieces will be noticed by your friends and visitors. As for the dimensions, the king measures 4" in height (ca. 100mm) and the pieces fit the board perfectly. Precious rosewood has been used to carve the black pieces while the white ones are made from boxwood of the highest grade. The black king weighs approximately 88g and for the white king we find a weight of ca. 83g. For increased stability and the perfect feel in your hands, the pieces have been doubly weighted. You feel the quality when you move the pieces against your opponent's front line!

To achieve a good price while not compromising on the good looks of your valued chess set, the board is made up from sycamore and mahogany veneer. This also saves considerably on weight when comparing it to a solid wooden board, and thus it's easy to move around. With a square size of 55mm, it snugly accommodates the pieces and is ideal when a closer set-up of the chessmen is wanted.

The Zagreb Chess Pieces combined with the mahogany board will not only add to the aesthetics of your lounge or family room but this set is also a pleasure to play with. Rosewood gives a luxurious feel to this set with its rich dark colours and its price is continuously increasing. Time to get your high-quality chess set and enjoy a game of chess!
