The ageless classic and one of the best-selling chess sets of all time, offering great quality and value.
A beautiful and well presented set. This set is comparable to sets 2 - 3 times the price that I have seen. Very happy with my purchase.
The order 6408 arrived safely at my home in Canberra on Wednesday 15 July.
The Staunton Rosewood Chess set is outstanding and the price very reasonable for such high quality. Your service including packaging and speed of delivery was excellent. I will certainly recommend you to other people.
It is nearly identical to the Staunton set I was given by my Grandfather 75 years ago and journeyed round the world with me for decades. As it was my son’s forty birthday I thought he deserved something better than the plastic set he has used for over thirty years. He was given it at the celebration dinner last night, and was really overjoyed to receive the set, and threatened to beat me using it when we next play.
Studding workmanship. A quality item. So impressed with how well it was wrapped to protect it during shipping. Very happy with my purchase.
Thank you so much for a beautiful product and amazing service a very special present for my son.
