Imperfect Chess Sets may have slight repairs carried out in the pieces and minute color mismatch may be observed.

Otherwise, they are of high quality like any of our typical chess sets of the same range and are in proper playable/ usable condition.

The original Dubrovnik Set was made in the fifties and sixties in the renowned master carver Jakopović's workshop. These are the pieces that Bobby Fischer proclaimed his favourite, this is the chess set that we can see him analyze with in various documentaries and photographs. He famously said ," I think it's the best chess set I've ever played on. It's just a joy to play with, a joy to hold, the definition of the pieces, the design, … it's just a marvelous set, but it's very hard to get, I don't have it."

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 antiqued stained to replicate the appearance of vintage chessmen.
The Dubrovnik with its fat, chunky bases and a solid well proportioned design is a crown jewel for any chess player or collector.

Imperfect????

I bought this "Imperfect" set of Chessmen, saving $70. Slightly Imperfect 1950s' Fischer Dubrovnik Chess Pieces Only Set - Antiqued Boxwood - 3.8 " King
I received them today, expecting something to be wrong with them, easy to spot. I have spent over an hour trying to find the imperfection. I cannot. I have carefully studied all 34 pieces, they all look perfect to me.
I had never purchased an "Imperfect" set before from anywhere. This experience certainly makes it more likely I will again in the future. These Chessmen are beautiful
(see photo) - you can't have them back. I am thrilled with this purchase.
