From king to pawn the pieces have elegant curves and shapes that create an attractive and coherent design

Like most Russian chess sets, the king has a simple conical shaped finial rather than a Cross patt eacute e found on English sets and the queen lacks a pointed coronet normally found on Staunton designs

Our Walnut and Maple Classic chess board is made with the finest veneers and sealed in semi-gloss polyurethane protective finish

The bishop miter is noticeably tall and slender without the slot normally found on English made sets

The bishop, knight, and rook are proportionately much taller than most Staunton sets that many players might prefer for easier moving during a game

The king is 4.125 tall and has a base of 1.7

The pieces are made from ebonized and natural boxwood and are heavily weighted to provide stability on the chess board

The squares are 2.25 and the overall size of the board is 21 and .625 thick

This large and handsome chess set is a replica based on a classic Russian pattern produced and commonly used during the soviet era in the 1940's

This pattern has all of the features commonly found on Russian and eastern European sets during this period with large bulbous shaped bases and columns curving upward terminating without a distinguishable collar
