Henry Chavet was a chess piece manufacturer who made chessmen for professional use for consumers in North America and Europe.
Our chess pieces are a reproduction of one of variants of Chavet Chess used in chess championships in 1980's to 90's.
This design was particularly appreciated by chess players for its simplistic design and clean lines.
It has no sharp protruding points making them a pleasure to hold and play with. White side of the Chess army has been artificially aged to give them appearance of vintage chessmen.
