    Thanks. But you have the old CB knight, not the New 2.0

    Thanks, I updated the photo to the Dubrovnik II knight.

    If anyone wants to see a Dubrovnik-style set in action, Grandmaster Niclas Huschenbeth has posted on his YouTube channel several videos of blitz games with friends in which they appear to be using the Dubrovnik pieces. For example see "Blitz mit Freunden #31" posted on November 5, 2017. Perhaps someone with knowledge of the different manufacturers can identify the maker of the set GM Huschenbeth is using.

    Saw them too, they are nice, must be one of the inexpensive copies that have been made over the years. Judging from the club and the broken old cardboard board they used in the vids before, probably a set that has been around for decades at the place. Seems to go well with the simple wooden standard board.

    Looks like one of the plastic Dubrovnik sets available in Europe.  > LINK

    My new CB Dubrovnik 3.6

    My new CB 3.6" King sheesham pieces. Not used to pawns this big. But still very happy with it! I find the recommended board size a bit weird. Website says 50-55 mm squares. My board has 55mm squares. Can't imagine it looks good on 50 mm squares. Pawns are WAY bigger than FIDE standards!

    Anyone know where to buy these ' vintage'  chessboards? They would fit great with the Dubrovnik pieces.

    Try ebay or etsy. Also start a new thread here, you never know some collector wants to sell it! Best of luck. BTW, congrats for new Dubrovnik. They looks sweet.
