Following my visit to the Chess factory in Orlov last month (see my previous post of the visit), I was asked to make a photo series to promote the company’s chess sets.
Some samples are below.
These chess sets are made in Russia, in the city Orlov (Kirov Region)
Notice the Kings and Queens are of different colors, that’s standard in sets in Russia
The web site of the company that makes the chess sets is www.shahmati.my1.ru
The sets are usually sold with the board, which folds in a box
The Orlov factory that makes the sets is the largest in Russia
This last photo is appropriately called “The Chess Queen”
Many more photos are on the full photo album.
