COMBO:- CHESS PIECES + CHESS BOARD + STORAGE BOX

Chess Pieces:- The original Dubrovnik Set was made in the fifties and sixties in the renowned master carver Jakopović's workshop. These are the pieces that Bobby Fischer proclaimed his favourite, this is the chess set that we can see him analyze with in various documentaries and photographs. He famously said ," I think it's the best chess set I've ever played on. It's just a joy to play with, a joy to hold, the definition of the pieces, the design, … it's just a marvelous set, but it's very hard to get, I don't have it."

Getting an original Jakopovic's set is almost impossible. Price of some of these sets which are in playworthy condition can run in excess of hundreds of thousands of dollars and possibly more.  
We have bought to life a precise reproduction of the original Dubrovnik with increased ballast at the base. The dark side army has been mahogany gilded replicating the original Jakopovic's Dubrovnik Variants.
The Dubrovnik with its fat, chunky bases and a solid well proportioned design is a crown jewel for any chess player or collector.
Update: After feedback received from many chess collectors and players from the chess community, we have made revisions to the rook which has now a straight body and shank as compared to the tapered variant which was sold earlier.

Almost perfect.

It is a very nice looking chess set. It arrived quickly and was well packaged. A few of the Mahogany Stained pieces did however slip out of wrapping a little bit towards the bases and one of the Mahogany Stained queens has a little knick down towards the base where the stain has noticeably come off where it must have rubbed up against another piece. Other than that, everything else was in great shape.
