Received both the pieces and the board together and the quality is top notch.
I'm very pleased!
Excellent. The chess pieces were of a quality for which I have paid much more in the past
We love the beautifully carved chess set. I gave it to my husband for his birthday and he was very pleased. It is even better than I expected. Thank you!
These chess pieces were perfect! Great value for the price. However, I did get a splinter from the wooden box the moment I touched it. This is a gift for my 9 year old daughter so I'm a little worried she could get a splinter.... but aside from that, the chess pieces themselves are awesome.
Great set! Beautiful pieces. I liked them so much I bought another!
