Product Description

The Reykjavik Championship Chess Set presents a re-imagination of the chess set used during the iconic 1972 match between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky. Simple, yet distinctive Staunton styling is combined with peerless detailing and finishing using only the finest graded ebony and boxwood.

The pieces feature a king height of 3.75 inches (95 mm) and are beautifully weighted and balanced. The pieces are presented on our quality Walnut and Maple Chess Board at almost 20 inches (50 cm).

This set is both beautiful and practical and includes a rootwood burl chess piece cabinet. The perfect gift for any chess playing enthusiast.

This luxury set includes 4 queens

Please note that when the chessmen are placed in the box it is normal and intentional for them to lay down on top of each other. They are NOT intended to stand up inside the box.

The chess board in this set has been expertly crafted by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain using precision laser cutting techniques and stunning wooden veneers combined with expert lacquering and finishing. The underside of the board is finished in a satin veneer that is a different colour from the playing surface of the board. The veneers used for the underside may vary in colour from batch to batch.

"was really glad that i ordered this particular set, it looks beautiful and is great value for money, my only critisism would be the board for me i feel as though its slightly too small, personally i prefer my boards to have bigger borders and with a nice decorative inlay in the border. this set will be used amongst my other sets for match purposes so will definately get plenty of use :)"

"To say that I am extremely happy with this set is an understatement. It is flawless in my opinion, exactly as described and the pieces look perfect on the board supplied. And the speedy delivery and secure packaging deserve mention too. Buy with confidence and expect nothing other than exceptional value for money."
