    Gorgeous set

    Posted by Michael on 2nd Feb 2018

    I bought this set to inspire my daughter to play more, and to augment her academic chess class, and it surely has worked! The pieces are beautiful, heavy, and feel great in hand, and the board has a gorgeous mirror finish. The set begs to be played, and is a centerpiece on the coffee table. Overall, I'm very impressed and couldn't be happier with the set.

    Elegance & Quality

    Posted by Liz on 8th Jun 2016

    I got this as a surprise for my husband and his eyes bugged out like it was Christmas morning! We are novice players that want to enjoy chess more, so I needed something that could be left out and not look like we just didn't put our toys away. This set fit the bill perfectly. It is well crafted and elegant without being pretentious, while the fierce knight gives it a subtle departure from the classic style. We love it and plan to get in many more chess games now.
