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."

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.
