The Tal Set is a reproduction of the famous chess set used in Soviet chess Championships in the 1960's.

This chess set has been a fruit of hard work done by our best artisans over 2 and a half months after we were given this design as a project by a chess piece collector

Tal set is a collectors' edition and a dream chess set for your chess collection or professional play. Serious chess players and collectors can recognize this set from the book - The Life and Games of Mikhail Tal.

Gute Qualität

Meine Mikhail Tal - Figuren heute ausgepackt. Verpackung war sehr gut, keine Beschädigungen, die Figuren sind genau wie auf den Fotos und passen perfekt auf die 57mm/2.25 inch Felder meines Schachbretts. Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit Royal Chess Mall, die Lieferung wurde wirklich schnell abgewickelt, wenn man bedenkt, daß es von Amritsar nach Frankreich ein weiter Weg ist.

Its a gorgeous set unlike some other sets Ive bought from others, including a dubrovnik and Hungarian set, this set has a really classic appearance. It truly looks like its not new even though it completely is. I have to say, I was surprised at the level of quality of this set ! Couldnt be happier. One piece broke on arrival, but I dont blame that on the supplier.

What RoyalChessMall did was to make a set with a king of 4 "and a reproduction that is not the same as the TAl photo, is clearly one of those variations. An exceptional set, with perfect manufacturing, a concern for fairness and balance between all the remarkable pieces, which gives the set an image of perfect simplicity so typical of many Soviet sets. Being a connoisseur and collector of Soviet chess pieces, I can say that a reproduction of chess pieces of this quality has rarely appeared on the market, careful in wood carving, in the aesthetic search of "not spoiling" the original. And that is very, very meritorious. pleasure to move these pieces. This set does not look bad in 5.5 square chessboard, but with 6.0 cm, you can see the beauty of these pieces and their "breath" on a chess board. Congratulations Royal Ches Mall

Feb. 4, 2021 The 1960's Soviet Championship Tal chess pieces arrived today after only one week to the day and I couldn't be happier! I especially like the flared tops of the rooks and the large, distinctive knights - unmistakably Tal era! Also of note are the pawns which are practicably impossible to tip over because of their wide, high bases. Of course the remaining pieces are great as well and anyone wishing to buy a ""Tal"" set should give this one a serious look - it's attractive and reasonably priced!

Sturdy and beautiful

As a Tal fan I felt I just had to have this set and I´m glad I bought it. Eminently playable but needs a quite large board. Exquisite craftmanship!

Couldn’t be happier!

I have order multiple orders from RCM and have been completely pleased from start to finish. This particular order was beyond expectations. The chess pieces are exactly as described and are even more beautiful in the hand. Our family will continue to shop from this supplier only. We couldn’t be happier. Thanks to everyone over there that keep creating these wonderful works of art.

Beautiful repro of 1960's Tal set

Initially I didn't think I'd like the thick bases as much, but now I definitely love them, and it gives the pieces a particularly nice feel, which I never got with any other set. Not only do the pieces feel good, but they also look good. Additionally, the pieces arrived on time and very safely packaged.
Some people may be wondering if the white pieces truly are as 'orange' as they appear in the photos, and the answer to that is: Yes, they are. They're definitely not white, but to me that's absolutely fine, as they are supposed to have an antique look, and I don't mind that at all, personally. Overall very happy, thank you RCM :)

The best period.

By far and away the best chess pieces I’ve ever owned or seen for that matter. I feel lucky just to have found this set. If you love chess you deserve this.

Very nice repro of 60's soviet Tal set

Great service from Royal Chess Mall thanks you ! Nice version of Soviet Tal set from 1960's. A bit disappointed at the pawns and pieces as the bases are too thick and not as rounded as historical photos. Overall very nice
