Bought this as a gift. Dispatch and delivery were prompt (standard delivery) and product was very high quality. I would recommend this as gift for any chess enthusiast.
Arrived in the nick of time for the birthday, which considering the delayed processing date was very good. Damian loves the set and will get great use of it
A great product that looks like it will last for many years to come! The inlay is beautifully done and the finish is great. Flexible with the different games and will look great as a feature piece in a room as well! Plus the service getting this was exceptional!
