The Antiqued Steinitz Series Chess Pieces




A very special set of pieces one that would appeal most defiantly to chess collectors. This set has been through a process that creates the appearance of a very old set, it imitates the patina of a 100 year old set, but without the price tag! A stunning and very popular set, one of our best selling sets of 2015. 

Named after the Austrian Grandmaster Wilhelm Steinitz, World Champion from 1886 to 1894 (8 years)
