I was missing a black knight so I ordered two ... that way each of the new knights would be the same. Quick delivery, just what i wanted.
Bought an onyx board and set in Mexico back in the ‘90’s. Once I got back to the US found the guy had given me 9 white pawns, and only 1 white bishop, so I stuck a large felt under a pawn to make it taller and called it a Bishop. He had also put in a white knight with no nose, which worked great for him as I wouldn’t be driving back to his store anytime soon after I got home to the US.
After all this time I was surprised to find these replacement pieces for sale at Chess House.
I ordered the white “clear swirled” Bishop and Knight. Dimensionally, they are a perfect fit to the set. Not even a fraction different. But, unlike the white clear swirled piece shown, these have a slight brown tint to them overall.
I’m sure they’re not the dark pieces, but they are slightly more tan than the white shown in the pic, which is what I have. But the difference is too close to complain about, and they fit the unique set nicely, which has white an brown swirled onyx squares on the board. No one playing white with this set would confuse the pieces, and the pieces all are varicolored enough that it doesn’t look odd.
Just check the height of your piece, and if it’s the same as these I think they will otherwise be dimensionally the same.
Please see the attached picture, and you can see the two new pieces at C1 and G1 on the board.
