Looking for an exceptionally well-crafted and historically significant chess set?
The Josef Hartwig designed Bauhaus Chess Set is one of the most perfect chess sets ever created. The Bauhaus Chess Set is one of the most historically significant objects from the Bauhaus.

Cubes, cylinders and balls lead you move by move to checkmate. The Bauhaus Chess Set is made with hardwood maple, each piece is cut to carry a specific grain pattern to ensure that the wood does not warp or chip, creating a durable heirloom quality chess set. This beautiful chess set makes a great gift for young and old. Ages 14 years and up.
