dubrovnik chess pieces

1950 Dubrovnik chess set was first seen in the 9th Chess Olympiad organized by the FIDE and the government of Yugoslavia.

This is a beautiful set in a really good size. Pictures on this website are good but the real set actually looks better. The knights deserve a special mention. Awesome design and carving work. I am thinking about ordering the 60mm matching board and think it will be a really classy set in my living room. Very happy with the purchase and customer service too. Thank you!.

This set is absolutely beautiful and stunning. It has a distinct south american motif, and it reminds me particularly of Inca culture. The knights mane is braided, just like the Incas do with their hair, and the rooks turrets remind you of those ornaments the Incas wear. Every piece looks fantastic, and while the overall design is grand and consistent, the set is not too ornamental and is very functional. Bud rosewood glowing red as it does, and the heft and the weight of the pieces, give the set a truly luxurious look and feel. If you want a set that combines elegance, luxury, and functionality, this is the set to get


I was overall extremely pleased with my purchase. The pieces are high quality, beautiful, and otherwise as advertised. The knights in particular have a presence to them. The service was prompt, courteous, and highly professional. I look forward to making further purchases from this company.
