Everyone loves a great deal! And each month The Chess Schach, or rather, my dear wife Angie (as this was her idea!) will select a listing from THE GALLERY to feature as our SET OF THE MONTH. This entitles you, our dearest customer, to a 10% discount on the asking price, which, of course, already comes with our complimentary free shipping! 
My heart can’t take Angie’s ideas I tell ya!!

**addendum … it is February 2021 and I have taken control of the SET OF THE MONTH (insert evil laugh here!). It was my idea, after all. My selections may not be based on the eye of an artist or the brain of a chess nerd, but I’m looking forward to choosing a new one every month from the heart. This time, it’s personal. Hope you like them! – Angie

A well-balanced, minimalist chess set designed in the functional Bauhaus style specifically for the Munich Chess Olympiad of 1936. For me, the bullet-shaped bishops totally steal the show in this early “Deutsche Bundesform” pattern, as they are literally designed for battle. Indeed, it’s rare to find one of these sets with any damage at all, as the perfunctory ringed collars are virtually bomb-proof!
