These chessmen are considered to have significant historical importance and are a timeless design classic.
This set was designed and made for the 1950 chess Olympiad in Dubrovnik (Yugoslavia).The 1950 Dubrovnik chess set was designed without religious symbols (king's cross & bishop's miter).. The pieces were sensibly designed to play with wide bases requiring a minimum of 55 millimeter chessboard squares. Originally were not weighted, however this set of pieces is.
In a radio interview Bobby Fischer stated: This 1950 Dubrovnik chess set is the best set I have ever played on. It is marvellous.Fischer owned a 1950 Dubrovnik chess set that he kept in a safe, which was subsequently sold by a storage company to pay for an outstanding storage bill. A chess collector provided a chess set after Fischer requested it for the 1992 Fischer–Spassky rematch held at Sveti Stefan. This is the later version of Dubrovnik chess set, world known design.
