1950's Soviet Latvian Chess Pieces are modeled after one of the favorite Latvian designs of Soviet Grandmaster Mikhail Tal.
The pieces have a unique and slender design which is aesthetically pleasing in their elegance. Wide Bases and sleek tops consistent in king ,queen and bishop make it a fresh change from the traditional Staunton design.
Knights are unusually large with their manes only on one side. The pieces have been double weighted using a combination of iron and lead studs to improve there playability on the chess board.
No wonder, this is one of the most popular designs of the soviet era!
Fact: The popularity of this design increased massively after it featured in the popular TV Series- The Queen's Gambit.

Thierry Smit

Very happy with the product. Real quality craftsmanship. Shipping was extremely fast.

The Romantic

I will admit, that I was skeptical because there was no reviews. But this is one of the best purchases I have made this year. The pieces have a nice weight and they are beautifully crafted. I was supposed to receive it by August, but arrived in less than a week. I will buy again from ROYALCHESSMALL.

This is a great looking set of chess pieces which I highly recommend!

joseph RICHARD
very nice set. love it

I'm taking one star off because the black top of the white king is off-centre, but apart from that I'm completely happy with the set. the pieces are all nicely crafted and weighted. love the knights particularly. totally worth ordering.

Oscar Arzola
Good enough

The pieces are good aside the knight that was built in two pieces (base + head) and also seems a little bit bumpy

kai sieber

Very nice, handcrafted figures and delivery faster than anounced.

Rares Zarif

One of the extra queens came with a slightly out of place weight, making it a bit wobbly, which I wasn't very happy about.
However, that doesn't take away from the beauty of these pieces and the fact that they arrived on time and safely packaged. The pawns are very small, but elegant. There is a clear contrast in size between the pawns and the other pieces. Overall, I'm happy to have bought this and to own yet another reproduced set of Soviet chess pieces. Thank you RCM :)

Love the pieces

The chess pieces came safely wrapped and in pristine condition. I’d suggest using your company to anyone.

Karim El Zein

I just love the design of these pieces, Royal Chess Mall were able to reproduce them in all their glory

Latvian Queen’s Gambit Chess Set

The quality of craftsmanship is superb, and the weight feels just right in your hand. However, one minor complaint is that the Black King’s top spire (which is white) has a couple of black spots. Otherwise, everyone is satisfactory!
