LOVELY, TWO TONED, VERY DETAILED CARVED, CHESS PIECE'S, WITH UNIQUE, INLAID CHESS SQUARES & A VERY NICE, CHESS CASE HOLDER, WITH A VERY, RICH COLORED CLOTH, FOR THE CHESS PIECES TO BE DISPLAYED IN. CPT SCOTT.
Several folks have trashed this chess set but I think it has wonderful possibilities. First the chess pieces are very beautiful but being resin they can break especially the bishops head. The plastic molded insert that holds the pieces in place is functional. I made the following alterations to the set. First I injected liquid insulating foam into the spaces formed by the plastic insert. This firmed up the insert and added mass to the box. Second, I sprayed the exterior of the box with 7 coats of lacquer for a beautiful finish. Lastly I filled in the joints with wood filler and painted it to match. The set now looks like a *** set. You can make a silk purse from a sows ear.
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.
