Zagreb Chess Pieces - Ebonized/Boxwood - 3.75" King
A classic European Chess set. The King, Queen, and Bishop have opposite color finials. The true history of this set is somewhat muddled. Many state this is a Russian Style set while others will tell you it was based on a design used in the '59 Candidates Match that had games in the fine city. This set with its styling looks like it came right out of the miniseries "The Queen's Gambit".
No matter where it came from...this is an amazing chess set. Eastern European styling cues make this set distinctive from across the room. It's one of the sturdiest Wooden chess sets on the market. It is made for the tournament scene from classic time controls to the destructive "Bullet" matches.
