The Staunton chess piece set "Zagreb" is not just a collection of chess pieces; it represents a piece of history and a symbol of chess elegance. Its design evokes the golden era of chess in the mid-20th century when tournaments worldwide captivated millions of chess enthusiasts.

The knight is the centrepiece of this chess set. Its unusual design, inspired by Russian art and culture, features an intricately intertwined horse's neck, exuding strength and robustness. It captures the attention of every observer and player, adding a unique touch to the set. In addition to the knight, the other pieces in the set are masterfully crafted. The king, queen, and bishop display colour accents of the opposite colour, immediately catching the eye and providing an additional visual dimension to the chess game.

All chess pieces were turned and hand-carved with the highest precision, supplemented with weights and felt underlay to ensure the optimal balance between aesthetics and functionality. The pieces are therefore easy to grip and manoeuvre while protecting the chessboard.

The use of boxwood and acacia wood for the chess pieces imparts not only a warm and natural appearance but also remarkable durability. The brown and reddish tones of the woods make mahogany or walnut wood chessboards a recommended choice to create an appealing colour harmony.

With a king's height of just under 95 mm, this set complies with the standard for tournament chess pieces and can find its place both in the club and in private collections. Additional queens are included for both colours, allowing pawn promotions without the need for replacement pieces.

For an optimal playing experience, the use of a chessboard with square sizes of 55 - 58 mm is recommended. On such a chessboard, the pieces are presented to their best advantage, and the proportions between the pieces and the board are aesthetically balanced and appealing.
