The Traditional Russian chess set is from the old Russian design favored in major international chess tournaments throughout the 1950s and 1960s. The dark chess pieces are made of Golden Rosewood and the light chess pieces are made of Boxwood. Golden Rosewood is a lustrous wood which is easy to carve, and is one of the most popular woods used to craft chess pieces. Its lovely color makes it very attractive to chess players world-wide. It is very durable and the wood is hard, with a uniform and medium coarse texture.
