I was very satisfied with the beautiful quality of the chessboard and the pieces. I wasn't aware the metal pieces were handcrafted in Italy! We were so surprised and it will definitely be in our family for generations to come.
I also have to say that customer service went above and beyond to assist me. I originally ordered the wrong small pieces that did not compliment the board, and this was a few days before Christmas! The very accommodating staff not only shipped out the new set but didn't wait for the other pieces to be returned before sending out the replacement pieces and everything arrived before Christmas! Christmas was saved an I am so grateful! The Chess Store is a wonderful company, customer service, and quality products! I highly recommend the Chess store!!!Hope Donnellan
