I had ordered this set for my new table and fit prefect on a 2 1/4" squares. They came fully protected in the packing. This is a great set and is weighted just right.
Good quality overall.
Fine details for all the pieces. The knights are beautiful.
Triple weighted pieces gives an additional plus to the set.
Very fast shipping via DHL. Outstanding experience.
I definitely do not recommend buying "slightly imperfect" cheaper version. There are too many imperfections in terms of chips and color variations.
The textile on the bottom of the pieces is a little bit too thin.
All in all, a good value for money.
This set of chess pieces is wonderful, no matter the insignificant imperfections that are barely visible. It is a superb set.
Arrived quickly. It was packaged very well and the pieces are wery nice. Once I got them in my hands I love them. The weights are very nice, color is matching. I noticed that there is small different between white and dark queen heads. But rest of the pieces are ok I really like the knights. They look very good and when you hold them you have good feelings. I was looking for a set with big pawns, weighted, queens with high close to kings and this special look of knights. I got all what I was looking for. Now I just need find them good box. thanks for the set. It was my gift for myself for Christmas the best one :)
Shipping was faster than expected, took a little over a week. Very well packaged and each chess piece was individually wrapped. The pieces are exactly what I wanted! Would order from here again!
The pieces arrived in a sealed box in seven days. The pieces were individually wrapped so as not to touch each other. The unboxing was so exciting that I felt like a child opening his Christmas gift.
I placed the pieces in a 2.5 inch square board. The pieces looked like they were ready for battle. I liked the contrast of the light boxwood pieces and the mahogany stained dark pieces, with their different shades of hue. When I moved the pieces, I felt like they were like butter sliding in a glass. It will be a real pleasure playing with these pieces.
I weighed the pieces individually. The total weight was 1,416 grams. The site declared a weight of 1,350 grams, so I was pleased with the weight of the pieces. Sometimes, I feel like I just want to hold and admire these pieces as it gives me great pleasure.
In conclusion, the pieces met my expectations. Kudos to Royal Chess Mall for providing us chess lovers with a good replica of Bobby Fischer's favorite chess set, at a good price, and excellent service.
This 1950’s Dubrovnik reproduction is incredible and an almost exact representation of the original 1950’s set. I feel this is one of the absolute best reproductions available and at a great price. You can thank YouTube’s “Random Chess Talk” for leading me to your store! :)
I purchased the mahogany-stained set and it looks so much like the original I was smiling from ear-to-ear for just about every piece as I unpacked! The buffing gives the pieces such a soft, satin glow and the overall craftsmanship is just beautiful. With a few nuanced differences, the Knight is very well done and bold. I appreciate the deference that Royal Chess Mall made to the chess community in changing the design of the Rook to better reflect the look of the 1950’s rook.
Not to overstate it, but these pieces are beautiful, honoring of the 1950’s version, and makes me proud to own a respectful reproduction of a piece of 20th century chess history.
I own 40+ Chess Sets. Nice little collection. I was showing it off to a Chess Friend of mine, and he liked what he saw, but at the end asked "Where is your French Chavet Set?" I didn't have one. Thanks to my friends at Royal Chess Mall, I have corrected that omission with this beautiful set. The knights are particularly nice. Quickly becoming one of my favorites.
