I would go with the 12" it's nice, but it could be larger! Also it doesn't come with felt pieces

Bought this as a Christmas gift for someone I know. It is a beautiful set to just have sitting around or using if you're a chess player. If not already a chess player nut, I'm hoping this guy becomes one and uses this beautiful set.

I had seen reviews where there were problems with the chess set arriving damanged, but mine was well packed and arrived without damage. The set is nice, but the pieces are a bit smaller than I had anticipated. All in all I would say this is well worth the money. I bought it for my husband's birthday and he really liked it.

This was an excellent gift for my boyfriend. The only problem we have had is that pieces break very easily, but with such a delicate material that is to be expected. The board and storage is very nice.

Chess Board of good quality, chess pieces arrived broken.

The pieces and board of this chess set are very cool! It is a very attractive chess set, especially for the price. It was quite the deal in my opinion! Most chess sets I looked at were much more expensive. The inside padding that keeps the chess pieces in place was pretty cheap and did not look as nice as the rest of the set but it does its job in keeping the pieces nice and organized. Love this set!

I am a female but I bought this piece while remodeling my black and white room. If you're looking for a creative unique piece that is unobtrusive this is IT! It's a delectable concoction of intellect, a little 'oil and sweat' and masculinity..sort of like the perfect man lol.

Things you should know: 1. The image on the site and the product are different. For instance the pawn is half the size (my girlfriend accurately described them as "missing their torsos" as compared with the photo). I returned the first set because of this, asked them to send me something at least close to the photographed product, and received the exact same thing except... 2. Pieces were broken. Each piece is made of two parts and roughly glued together, but one king arrived in two pieces. However, even if they stay in tact, pieces were often chipped. For example a black bishop was chipped exposing a large patch of white, unsightly stone beneath. 3. If you care about the interior (I don't), it's not put together well. The case feels like it might fall apart at any given moment. I was sitting there thinking "I could glue the king back together and use a marker to color the stone and buy a finish for the interior wood and buy new hinges and...wait - didn't I just buy this?" I was hoping to buy a nice chessboard at a decent price, but this was not it.

This was suppose to be a gift but I changed my mind after receiving it! Due to the fact it looked like someone else had been using the set with all the scratches and nick on it. Didn't want the person to think I was giving them something used.

I was a little disappointed with the chess set. I was expecting it to be nicer. The pieces are pretty small, and not very well carved. Kind of like you would expect if someone carved a thousand of them a day. The case is pretty cheaply made, too; especially the fabric on the interior. I ordered it as a gift for my adult son, and once it arrived I realized that I could not give him that. I went to the mall and bought a nicer carved wooden chess set, although I did end up paying more for it

This was purchased for a 14 year old young man who has been playing chess for about 6 years. He has started to collect chess sets and I was looking for something a little more sophisticated and elegant but rugged enough to withstand multi-game tournaments. I found that in this product. It is beautiful and wonderfully crafted. The wooden 'table' is a hinged case with a cushioned velvety interior with individual slots for the soapstone pieces. The chessmen are individual works of art. There is a note inside stating that each piece is hand crafted, caveat emptor in your belief of this, however true or not they are amazing to behold. The size of the pieces is perfect for a moderately advanced novice to start using. Each different man is easily distinguished from the others and that is important not to have a pawn and a bishop who resemble each other too greatly. This is an elegantly crafted sophisticated chess set that handles easily and is compact enough to travel and has become the favorite chess set to date.

The chess set was a replacement gift to my oldest son. Who did not receive one a Christmas (ordered from a different establishment) it turned out better than the one's I purchased for my other children. Very elegant.

I was very excited to purchase this set. It came to me in two days, but to my disappointment, the side of the chess set was cracked. The shipping box was in excellent shape so I know it wasn't a shipping problem. Soapstone is a very weak stone. I sent it back without wanting another one sent to me. The case itself was pretty but the crack wasn't.

I had to return this chess set. I thought it would be a nice beginner's set, but it's cheap and broken in shipment. Poor quality. Don't buy this item.

The product is good enough quality. I wanted something that wasn't too big and could be displayed on a mantelpiece. This meets that goal.

This set is much smaller than it appears online. It could almost be categorized as a 'mini' chess set. It is, however, beautiful and well made. This chess set is for my eight year old son and I'm a little apprehensive about how the size of the board will affect his game. This may become our 'travel' set while we purchase a larger board for home use.

The chess set was the perfect one I was looking for. It's unique and the peices have a good weight. I added felt to the bottom of the pieces which was easy.

thought I was buying a full size chess set for the price
