Yugoslavia Staunton Chess Set in Red Sandalwood & Boxwood with Bud Rosewood Molded Chess Board – 3.875″ King


This is beautiful and one of kind chess set includes our Yugoslavia Staunton in red sandalwood and boxwood matched with our Bud Rosewood and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board. We’ve had these special red sandalwood chess sets in our vault for years and are releasing only a very small number of these for sale this year. What makes this chess set so special is the wood – Red sandalwood. Red sandalwood is no longer available due to import restrictions and when our stash of red sandalwood chess sets are gone, that’s it forever. Red sandalwood has beautiful qualities and has been used for a variety of high-end craft related items for many years while the supply has been diminshed greatly. The red sandalwood tree is now protected from harvest in India where this precious wood comes from.Our Yugoslavia Staunton originates from the chess set designed for the 1950 Chess Olympiad held in Dubrovnik,Yugoslavia. The knight has a unique design with its slender neck and downward facing head making giving it a very distinguishable look. The king finial, queen, and bishop tops are made from the opposite wood which is another feature that makes this set stand out from the rest. These features along with a robust profile make it a favorite for chess players around the world and is one of our most popular chess sets. We made a few minor changes such as adding a tapered base to enhance appearance and balance of the chess pieces while maintaining the integrity of the intended design. You’ll love playing with this chess set whether it’s a casual game at home or a tournament match. Our Bud Rosewood and Maple Molded Chess Board is made for by Rechapados Ferrer and is the perfect board for this set.
