"I believe every chess collector should have at least one Chavet." -- A quote which directed me toward a second purchase from Royal Chess Mall.
These French Chavet pieces have taken over as the main choice for long study sessions. I've had them with me everywhere I go over the last few months. Beautiful.
During the first study session with the new pieces, 17th July 2023, I felt inspired to compose. I quickly discovered that 12 squares, occupied by one of each type of chess piece both black and white, could create a big R on the chess board (for Royal Chess Mall). Soon I had the Mate in 3 which you can find in the pictures. Hopefully it is a worthy tribute to the craftsmen responsible for this set.
