THE CHESS MUSEUM
A minefield of information on all sorts of chess related paraphernalia, but especially vintage chess sets collected from every corner of the world.
If you’re looking to research a set before purchasing, this is a great place to start. And check out their LINKS page too for gaggles of interesting and unusual sites.
HOLGER’S ANTIQUE CHESS SET COLLECTION
Holger Langer’s eye-wateringly ‘wunderbar’ collection of vintage chess paraphernalia is the envy of most every enthusiast and collector I know.
Check out his website or follow him @chesscollector on Instagram to discover the hidden treasures of Holger’s humungous hoard of collectables from years gone by.
Keep up to date on virtually everything relating to chess and kick some arse against live online competition.
But be careful not to ‘fall into any traps’ along the way, or as the famous Spanish clerico Ruy Lopez de Segura once put it, ‘armar cancadilla’ – as you may well bump into me!?
