All are beautifully executed in a rich rosewood finish; the set would make a wonderful gift for yourself, for newlyweds, housewarmings, recent graduates . . . anyone to whom you want to wish the best. Suggestions to potential buyers: Make certain to check the measurements; the characters may be smaller than you imagine. Also, if you don't know the meanings of the symbols, you may want to put a small nametag on the back of each one (so you can tell your admiring friends what each symbolizes!)Read More
