Description

THE CHESSMEN:

"In Celebration of the 45th Anniversary of the legendary 1972 World Chess Championship, featuring Robert J. (Bobby) Fischer (USA) and Boris Spassky (RUS), we proudly introduce the finest reproduction of one of the most historically important Chess sets ever produced.

The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Fischer Spassky 1972 Series Commemorative Chess set. A full tournament-sized Chess set, it features a 3.75" King with a 1.625" diameter base. The Chess pieces are hand carved by our master artisans and crafted out of the highest grade woods. The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a glossy finish to future accentuate the details. 

The design of the Fischer Spassky 1972 Commemorative Chess Set is an exact reproduction of the Chess set used by the legendary American Grandmaster Bobby Fischer when he won the 1972 World Chess Championship against the reigning World Champion Grandmaster Boris Spassky in Reykjavik, Iceland. The Chess set has been designed to withstand years of use (and abuse), as it lacks many of the ornate details commonly found on Chess Sets that can be susceptible to damage in the heat of battle. For example, the Chess set features reinforced Pawn collars and oversized Rook ramparts for unmatched durability. This chess set is ideal for those that are interested in both the historical importance of the game of Chess, as well as those looking for an attractive Chess set that is both economical and durable.

As with all of our Chess sets, the Fischer Spassky 1972 Commemorative Chessmen exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality. It has been designed to withstand the rigors of practical play while maintaining an elegance which has become the hallmark of a House of Staunton chess set. The design, quality and craftsmanship of this set is UNMATCHED by any set of Chessmen in its price range. Nothing even comes close!

The Chessmen are new and each set consists of 34 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton over 10 years ago.

THE CHESSBOARD:

Crafted in Spain, the House of Staunton's Standard Traditional Mahogany / Maple Wooden Chessboard - Satin Finish features Mahogany (dark) and Maple (light) squares with a Mahogany frame. This veneered Chessboard is 0.5'' thick and has a satin finish.

THE CHESSBOX:

The Premium Chess Box is lined in green billiard cloth, divided and features brass quadrant hinges and a lock & key. This box comes with the House of Staunton logo laser engraved on the lid.
