Upon receiving this chess set I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the board and upon opening it the pieces are well made and safety nestled in a nice padded interior. I was very pleased with this purchase.
The set is nice. The board is heavy and made of stone - no wood in the board. The white pieces are Onyx. The site says the black pieces are Marble, but I am not sure. They are made of heavy material. Felt on the bottom of pieces and board is low quality, may need to switch out. Chess Set approved by 16 yr old boy.
Christmas gift that really turned out well. We play chess all the time and this set is gorgeous, but not too pricey, and we get a lot of use out of it.
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.
