Whilst ZAO Souvenir is mostly known for its world famous Matryoshka production, the production facilities are also used to make traditional games such as chess and lotto. Therefore, on this page you can find a basic overview of our current chess production.
Our main chess production concentrates on two sizes of chess sets, with and without a chess board. The chess pieces are made from birch and are natural wood colour for white pieces (with lacquer) and the black pieces are stained and lacquered. The sizes are "Grand Master" for large and "Souvenir" for small. Below is an example of a Large chess set with board (430mm х 215mm х 55mm), painted in traditional Russian Folk Art Style.

Please note that all of our chess production is pre-order only. We do not keep any stock for the export market.
