Bought this for my niece who has expressed an interest in chess. The pieces are nicely boxed and look like it will be a great beginner set to match an heirloom chessboard that my father made when he was a boy.
I am extremely pleased with my new chess men. I am working on chess puzzles, which is a favorite pastime of mine. I would like to buy an extra queen; just let me know the cost.
Grate came sooner then expected
This is a beautiful set of chess pieces in a lovely case. I glued some felt to the base and inside of the case to complete the look. These are good chess pieces and wooden case at a fair price.
Feels great, a nice 3Ó small set to whack around. The knights were slightly distorted by comparison to the lovely knights in the photos, but worth the money.
