The chess set arrived promptly when ordered. The wooden storage box which doubles as the chess board is carved and stained- very nice. The chess pieces nestle into the storage slots inside. It is perfect for the first set for my grandson. The pieces are interesting shapes, capturing his interest. This is the second chess set I have ordered from Yellow Mountain. I would recommend this product and company.
My daughter wanted a chess set or Christmas and specifically asked for this one. I had seen several that cost much, much more and thought she had made a mistake. When I saw the Yellow Mountain set, I knew why she requested it. It is absolutely beautiful -- artistic and well-made. You will not regret this purchase.
