Beautiful set, very happy with purchase and delivery service
Very impressed with the quality of this set, purchased to start playing with my eldest over the holidays, did not expect such a nice quality set!
Received this chess set within a couple of days of ordering. Thank you. It is just beautiful. Great quality in the workmanship. The pieces feel nice to hold and are weighted well. The board is well made and the convenience of it all packing away so neatly is perfect. This is an excellent product and I would recommend it to anyone to buy. You won't be disappointed. The only issue I may have is that I haven't been able to beat my son in a single game!!
Got this for my wife for X-mas and we both are really enjoying playing on this board!
Lovely sizing and styling of the pieces, great board size and nice and compact when packed away. well worth the price!
The product was exactly as described. The pieces feel nice and weighted. Looks great with a number of deco and we have decided to keep it permanently set up on the coffee table. The children haven't stopped playing since it arrived.
