Bundesform or the Federal Form Chess Pieces emerged as alternative to the widely used staunton chess pieces in the 1930's in Germany. 
They became popular for use in Munich Chess Olympics of 1936 and subsequently found their use in chess tournaments.
They were particularly appreciated for their simple design, durability and affordability.  

This design will find great favour amongst chess players and collectors for their distinct appearance and playability. 

The chess pieces have been expertly handcarved and turned by master artisans with years of experience crafting these pieces. They are highly durable and will last for years and years to come.

I had been searching for a modest, well-crafted chess set. I searched through etsy, Amazon, local makers businesses, had no luck.

I gravitate to minimal, simple designs. I was also searching for a set that included two queens and a king piece that was around 3.75" - 4" tall. I wanted a set that I could pass down to the next generation, and one that would not break the bank.

I tried to ask online streamers about what physical chess set they recommend, I searched through YouTube. I found chess.com forums useful. I was not aware of what the tournament standards were, but wanted a future-proof set if we get back to playing live games again after the pandemic.

Justification for purchase: It's just nice to have a tactile game available, versus playing digitally the majority of the time.

I'm quite impressed by their product. I'm not being paid to say this.

The pieces were packed with great care, individually wrapped, and had a packet of silica gel beads in the plastic bag.

I plan to match the set with a board eventually, or I may make one myself. For now, I am using a 20" vinyl board I found from a different seller.

The pieces are heavy enough they should not knock over easily in a breeze.

Really cool set, based on the Bauhaus style (used in the Munich 1936 chess olympics apparently!) Big solid pieces and great quality. Thought it might take ages to turn up from India but was really quick.

Not easy to find a Bundesform set in the UK, something I had been looking at for a time. So I was very pleasantly surprised to see RCM are offering this. Along with a number of other very interesting sets. Quality is superb at this price.
