I found the chess set I bought very nice and just a I wished. However, the board itself was not real wood but covered with viner. A cheap quality board. The pieces are made of good quality. I recommend buying the pieces and making or getting the board elsewhere.
Very glad we purchased this board. Perfect size for coffee table. Chess pieces are weighted nicely and the board is beautiful. Great purchase!!
The product was a Christmas present for my father. The table is masterly done, and my dad loved the detailed work on the pieces. The pack has one extra queen for each color. The pieces are slightly smaller than I thought but nothing too small. The images provided are accurate with the product in-person. It's a great product and a great gift idea!
