Fischer/Spassky Replica Chess Set

(50040 / 50041 / 50042 / 50045)

The original Staunton design, as invented by John Jaques of London in 1847, was the de-facto standard for chess pieces by the end of the 19th century. In 1972, Jaques were commissioned to produce a set for the classic and notorious match between Bobby Fischer and Spassky. For chess historians and enthusiasts alike, the replica Fischer/Spassky set is a fascinating and aesthetic collector's item. A beautiful hand-made presentation set, it is presented in a superb baize-lined polished cabinet with lock and is supplied with a certificate of authenticity. Now available in four different case exteriors as pictured.

King height is stated as 3.5 inches in Jaques literature. This set does feature the red Jaques marks on the King's Rook and Knight.

Many retailers claim that these pieces are replicas of the original 1847 or 1849 set. This is untrue. None-the-less, it is a very nice looking set.
