Historical Chess Sets

Historical Chess Sets

At Masters Traditional Games, we like to find things that are a bit special or unusual. With Chess, it is particularly easy to go and buy any old Chess set from a mundane high-street shop. Why do that, when we can send you something a lot more interesting?

Please note that most of our historical Chess sets do not come with a board. You might be interested to peruse our selection of Chess boards and Chess tables as well.
