I ordered this as a Christmas present for a family member and was very pleased, the pictures don't do it justice, the pieces are wonderfully and intricately carved, I especially loved that the Knights were elephants!

This chess set was a valentine's day gift for my husband, and he loves it! Very masculine and modern look, but looks great in our living room.

The quality of the pieces is good for the price. The soapstone is beautiful.

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.

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.

Item came in good condition. It was a little smaller then I thought it would be. My son likes it though and that's all that counts in my book.

Bought this to have a nice set that my daughter and husband could leave out all the time for their games. Disappointed though that the pieces easily scratched the board even with the best of care... we remedied the issue with stick on felt from the hardware store, like you would put on furniture or candle sticks or something. I wished later I hadn't spent so much on a set that they are just practicing on, but it's nice with the little clasps that keep the lid shut tight when not in use. Overall, I'd buy it again, especially if it was on sale.

This chess set is awesome. We bought it for our 12 year old who loves chess. We read all the other reviews, and took the advice to put felt on the bottom of the pieces to prevent chipping or scratching and it works great!! The pieces still fit in the case, too. My son thinks this is the best gift he ever got. He take it out sometimes just to look at the pieces. We also gave him the story of how the set was made. It seems a little fragile, but we will just be careful with it. It was definitely worth the price and it was a great gift!!

Good stone chess set for someone who wants something nicer than plastic pieces~ but isn't really ready to get a full blown expensive stone set yet. The stone on the board is nicely constructed and perfectly smooth to the touch, the pieces are decently carved(could be better, but I'm still satisfied). I love that the board has built in case to store the pieces when they're not in use~ the interior liner is as cheap as can be(I may replace it myself if it ever gives me flak), but does the job and didn't greatly impact my overall pleasure with the purchase.

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.

I needed a chess set that we could use for the set of our local opera company's production of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro and then be able to give it as a Christmas gift to my brother who love to play chess. The customer service rep was very helpful in helping me through the purchase process. The set arrived in great condition. The pieces were beautifully carved and packed in the case. The director and cast members of the opera really liked the chess set and would play a game before rehearsal. It looked elegant on the table as if you were walking in the castle and watching the Count play a game. I just wrapped it up and will put it under the tree next week. Thanks for helping me dress the stage so beautifully and give my brother a special gift!

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.

Very nice chess set. It did surprise me that it was not covered on the bottom of the pieces. But very nice.
