There have been so many modern chess sets designed in the 20th century. I have always wondered why none of them are still in production. I have sold many vintage ones from 500. to 1500. and people have been happy to find them.
I think one of the issues is that, although we may want something modern, simple and beautiful, the pieces have to very clearly represent what they are in order to make playing intuitive and not have design get in the way.
I have always liked this set. I carried it years ago and I have been unable to find it again (definitely unable to find it at a reasonable price).
Well, here it is again. A very nice simple set with a simple board. $165.00
