Zagreb Wood Chess Pieces w/ 3" King in Rosewood #SKA532
In the 1950s and 1960s the Zagreb Chess Set was one of the most popular chess sets used at major international chess tournaments, most notably the World Championship Candidates Match that was held in Bied, Zagreb in 1959.Thus, you may often see this set called the Zagreb '59. (Zagreb is now the capital of Croatia.)
This beautiful reproduction set comes with two queens of each color. The queens and bishops have a contrasting color ball on top and the king has a contrasting crown. The knight is a most interesting piece. Patterned after a Russian knight, he has his head down, a closed mouth, a dramatically carved head, and thin curved neck above his thick chest.

Beautiful historic pieces
Contrast tops on several pieces
Felt lined bottoms
Elegant Rosewood and Boxwood Pieces
