Chess was a part of the aristocratic culture since Middle Ages. As part of noble culture, it was used as a means of teaching war strategy and was dubbed the "King's Game".  Beautiful chess sets used by the aristocracy of the time are mostly lost, but some of the surviving examples date back to the 12th century.  Elegant chess sets make a statement and are cherished by their owners and future generations.

We offer a selection of handmade wooden chess sets, from the Tatra mountain region, which exhibit exquiste craftsmanship, impeccable construction and high artistic quality.  Most are made from a combination of poplar, linden, birch and beech woods, and one example is 100% oak.  All pieces have felt bottoms.  Satisfaction guaranteed.
