I was so happy to find this chess set at an excellent price on cyber Monday. It is a beautiful high quality set and was delivered quickly. I purchased it for my 14 year old son. He was pleased to receive a grown up chess set to replace his worn out plastic set from Toys R Us. It was great to support an artisan from India. Only negative - sometimes it is hard to distinguish between the different pieces.
This is the first time I have received something from Overstock.com that I was not thrilled with. To look at it is pretty but does not seem like a stone, more like a thick plastic. Smaller then I had imagined, but that was my fault for not reading carefully. The box is roughly made and has splinters if you are not careful you will get stuck.
I love soapstone...pleasantly surprised after I disregarded the negative reviews and went for it anyway! The quality is really great! Detailed carving and perfect size! The storage is excellent also, the pieces are kept apart so they don't chip by hitting each other. Definitely recommend!!
This appears much bigger on the screen. It is not put together well and im almost embarrassed to give it to my 14 year old son. The one he already has from walmart is better! The wood on the box is dull, the inside of the box is put together poorly and falling apart. Very unhappy with this product.
I was looking to purchase a chess set for my friend's daughter for her birthday. I went on Overstock.com and found a nice selection from which to choose. I had the chess set delivered to my friend's home which made it very convenient since I could not be there for the birthday party. Very easy, great selection and quick and cheap delivery - all around, a great experience. I will definitely use Overstock.com again.
I was a little uneasy about my purchase at first because of the price...you know, you get what you paid for. But this chess set surpassed even my hopeful expectations. It's absolutely beautiful and looks like I paid 3 times the amount I did.
