This white marble and black onyx set is quite nice. The carving in the black pieces is gorgeous, but the white pieces are a bit marred by the white marble color irregularities which can look like repaired fractures. I presume that they are just variegation in the marble, however. The chess board itself is very lovely - the white and black are very glossy and smooth. I haven’t actually given it to my spouse so the pieces have not yet been played with, but I think that the markings, while not completely traditional for bishops in particular, will be adequate to allow for stimulating games with beautiful stone pieces.
I have ordered this as a Christmas present and was very pleased with the quality for the price. The size of the board is a bit smaller than the average chess set but for something that will be stored it is perfect.
two nice features: the storage for the chess pieces and both drawers open simultaneously. the inlay is nice. not impressed with the cheap drawers pulls (really cheap) and the size of the board is small. my teen son did love the set.
My kids had this game as children and loved it. Now 40 years later I bought it again for our grandkids and our kids as a family game and they all love it. Its a mulit game, game board and they never get tired of it. It gets them back to communicating with each other. a great game!!
