I basically used the rough Indian manufactured version of this classic chess set as blanks. The knights are almost unrecognizable from the Imperial set. The mane, ears, eyes, nostrils and mouth have all been meticulously reworked and are more in tune with the Dubrovnik and Leningrad sets that are a tad more elegant and pleasing on the eye. The bishops have gained a stockier appearance and the rooks have had their merlons reduced which were prone to chipping. The royals, too, have had some minor alterations giving the set in general a feel of a vintage tournament set from the 1950s.
