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.
Just like the original Dubrovnik used by Bobby Fischer, this chess set is sold unweighted at its base.
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.

This is another nearly perfect set like my former purchased "Dubrovnik/antiqued boxwood" set( which is weighted). This set in natural boxwood and mahagony stained boxwood is not weighted and superb for traveling and vacation. Yes i like it a lot because its Dubrovnik (my favourite kind of pieces) and so near to the original ones of 1950's chess olympiade. Thanks for the best service
to the royal chess mall team and the very fast shipment.
In addition i have 2 photos of my new set compared to the original one (photo to the right).
