RoyalChessMall did an excellent job on this reproduction, even "lowering" the King's size to 9.5cm (3.7 inches) when many of these sets feature an 11cm King. However, this set shows us a prodigious balance between the size of each piece and the base, an elegance in the chessboard that marvels. The carving work of enormous quality and the simplicity of the design of each piece, based on the original, is to be highlighted. As a collector of Soviet pieces (Youtube video "Soviet chess Pieces") I can only be happy that RoyalChessMall makes this high quality reproduction available. Moving these pieces on a board is a pleasure. This Set is to be placed on a chessboard with 5.5 cm to 6.0 square! Ah! The price of this set is unbeatable with the competition and for this exceptional quality a bargain. In the target, RoyalChessMall!
These were beautiful and came quickly. My son loved them
I ordered these for my brother who was very specific about what he wanted. My brother is a Master ranking chess player with very high standards. After receiving these chess pieces, he was speechless. The quality was spectacular he says and he was very happy with this gift. Thank you for supplying a product that was worth every penny.
Very nice, slightly smaller (80%) version of "grosmastierskich". The quality is very good and the delivery to Poland was fast. I highly recommend
