November 2013 Featured Chess Set

Posted in Exhibitions, Featured Chess Sets

Monthly Featured Chess Sets are Back!

Featured chess sets were on hiatus during Prized & Played—since we already had so many chess sets on display—but with our fall exhibitions we’re bringing them back! During November, this charming jungle-themed chess set can be viewed on our third floor landing, just outside the entrance of Jacqueline Piatigorsky: Patron Player Pioneer. Make your trip to the WCHOF anytime in November and see the “King of the Jungle” rule the board!

Do you live in the Saint Louis metropolitan area and have a chess set with a great story? Submit it for inclusion in our Featured Chess Set project! This program highlights chess sets with interesting backgrounds borrowed from chess lovers and fans of the Hall of Fame. Featured chess sets are displayed for a period of one month at the World Chess Hall of Fame.

If you would like to participate in the program, send a photo and the story of the set to Emily Allred, Assistant Curator, at
