The Modern Soviet Deluxe Chess Set
Introducing The Modern Soviet Chess Set, a perfect combination of classic Soviet design and modern craftsmanship. This full club-size chess set comes with a 21.5" deluxe chess board, and features 34 hand-carved pieces, including extra Queens, crafted by our master artisans from the highest quality wood. The pieces are nicely weighted and feature a polished ebonized finish.
The design of the Modern Soviet Chess Set is a mosaic of features of Soviet influence, with a king and queen that have opposite color finials, and a bishop that lacks a miter cut consistent with evolved Soviet sets. The knight resembles the shape of Botvinnik-Flohr pieces emerging in the 1930s, and the stem and collar of the pieces follow the outline of the "Voronezh Curve".
The 21.5" deluxe chess board, made in Barcelona by Rachapados Ferrer, features 55mm squares and a square size border, and easily accommodates most 3.75"-4" Kings, making it ideal for competition or home display. This set pairs perfectly with our Latvian chess pieces to complete the look from the show.
Experience the timeless design of Soviet chess sets with the finest craftsmanship and materials available. The Modern Soviet Chess Set is perfect for collectors, enthusiasts, and players looking for a unique and beautiful addition to their chess collection.
