Our Supreme Grandmasters Supreme Series Chess Pieces are an excellent reproduction of the famous chess set used in 1961-74 USSR World Championships.

To add an interesting variation to the chess set, we have used Glass Eyes on the face.
Glass Eyes was a concept which was typically seen in German Or French Chess Sets.
The 1961 World Chess Championship match was played between Mikhail Botvinnik and Magician from Riga, Mikhail Tal. Although Tal was a strong favourite to win the match, Botvinnik won convincingly by a 13-8 margin.

First class service and craftmanship. This old set got a 'new' face lift with the eyed knights (a touch more dealers & cravers should use). Man does it make the difference - the comments I get when I pull this out to play - its like a 'new' innovation to the young players (but older players know its been around a long while). Classic piece styling with a nice twist!
