Grand Master Brass Chess Set
Grand Master Brass Chess Set

This is the original and best version of the popular Grand Master brass chess set that we have sold for several years. This is a very heavy and substantial yet attractive 34 piece set of chess men with extra queens supplied as standard. The Kings height is 4.07" (104mm) tall and has a wide base diameter of just under 1 3/4" (43.37mm)

Here's a picture of the anodised black pieces:

And here's how they look when lined up:

Here's a picture of the metal chess pieces lined up on the optional 21" x 21" Golden Rosewood chessboard (+$175) which we recommend for this set and must be purchased separately.

What to look for in a brass chess set:

1.The quality of the molding carving- are you able to see the detail in the knight's mane, for example?
2. What is the weight of the king? Our's is 6 ounces, which means the pieces are virtually solid not hollow.
3. Do the pieces rest absolutely level and can the piece edge come in contact with the board? Our pieces have significant bevelling and the felt pad is absolutely solid in position and protrudes beyond the base metal ensuring your board won't get accidentally scuffed!
4.Is the king a full 4" tall? Ours is, just over at 4.07"!
5. Are the pieces protected against oxidation? Ours are lacquered to ensure you never have to polish them.
6. What is the weight of the entire set of pieces? Ours weighs 8 lbs 3 Ounces.

We recommend our optional 21" x 21" Golden Rosewood board because the wood color is golden and contrasts well with the brass chess pieces. If you prefer an identical rosewood or even an ebony board to that shown then those are available as well. All the pictures were taken on the lighter colored golden rosewood board. Of course any board with 2 1/8" squares, or larger, that you like may work better for you which is why we don't include it in our standard price. Other options include our pure leather tray custom chess case which has been specifically designed to protect each chess piece.

Extra queens are supplied as standard.


As an interesting story, we were pleased to confirm that The Grand Master brass chess set was selected by NBC's The Player TV series which was shown on National TV. Their designers selected these pieces from TheChessPiece.com with our unique chessboards and together they look great!

The Player, NBC's new TV series features the Grand Master brass chess set on our bone and horn chessboard.

Love it!

Really beautiful set and looked even better than the photos. Steve was a pleasure to deal with and the set came very quickly. Such a great experience!

Absolutely Beautiful

- 1/11/2014

I bought the GMB1 chess set and the rosewood board.I could not believe the beauty of this set. Worth every penny. I had to wait because it was back ordered but it was well worth the wait. If you buy one you will not be disappointed. The people at the Chesspiece store can be trusted to do it right.

GMB1 Brass Chess Set

- 12/5/2010

I purchased the GMB1 Brass Chess Set. It is w/o a doubt the finest set I've ever bought. I've played and collected chess sets since I was 16 and this is by far the highlight of my collection. It is EXACTLY like the photo on there web page, and as you know that isn't always the case. It is an attention getter for sure. I'm very pleased to own one.

Nice proportionate design and great heft!

- 9/14/2010

I was really surprised at how nice these chess pieces are and the extra queens was a real bonus! Very clean lines, good cushioning and proportioning across the chessmen. The pride and joy of my slowly building chess collection!

I was amazed

- 2/27/2009

I ordered this set because the pieces looked so attractive on the internet. When I received them I was amazed at how much more beautiful they are than in pictures. Having the extra queens makes this set a really great value.
