From 6 September to 31 October of 1959, eight of the worlds strongest Grandmasters competed in a powerful quadruple Round-Robin Tournament, played in Bled, Zagreb and Belgrade, Yugoslavia, to determine the challenger for the crown of World Champion currently held by Soviet Grandmaster Michael Botvinnik. Amongst those competing were the young American Robert James "Bobby" Fischer .

To commemorate that classic struggle, The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Zagreb '59 Series Chessmen, a stunningly chess accurate reproduction of one of the most popular chess sets used in the major International tournaments during the 1950s and 1960s. We have taken the liberty of making some minor modifications, such as replacing the ball finial atop the King with a more traditional cross to conform to modern Western tournament praxis.

This full-tournament sized set features a 4.0" King, weighs an impressive ounces and includes 4 Queens. The design and feel of these Chessmen make them ideal for both Tournament and Rapid Play (Blitz) Chess. It is designed to withstand the rigors of practical play while maintaining the elegance that has become the hallmark of all House of Staunton Chessmen.

As with all House of Staunton Chessmen, they exemplify the perfect combination of beauty and functionality. 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, 17 light and 17 dark (including the two additional Queens.)
