Product Details

These reproduction Mordovian chessmen come as a set of 34 with extra queens. This famous Soviet design was modeled after one of the favorite designs of "The Magician from Riga", Soviet Grandmaster Mikhail Tal – which is why the set is sometimes confusingly called the ‘Latvian’ set. This Cold War era style experienced renewed fame by its use in the Netflix mini-series, The Queen's Gambit, in the 7th episode where Beth faces off against Borgov. 

These pieces have a unique form with slim sloping stems into a wide stable weighted base. The contrast to a traditional staunton design is both appealing and refreshing. No wonder it is one of the most popular Soviet Russian designs.
