In Russia chess is a very popular game, almost every schoolboy used to know how to play chess since Soviet times when the Russian chess grandmasters like Karpov or Kasparov were rocking the world chess scene.

Since then many years has already passed but still it's considered a must to have a chess playing set at home. The better looking the board is the better it is, some lucky ones get hand made sets, carved from wood or ivory coast.

Here are works of just one author, mainly from ivory, some of the might look nsfw, but those are just chess pieces.
