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 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 was the perfect gift for my husband's Uncle who basically has everything. He's been all over the world and he is very well-read. I knew this would be the perfect gift for the man who has everything! Turns out, he happens to collect chess sets (couldn't have planned that better if I tried). The chess set was very light and the pieces were well-contained in the storage area of the chess board. It was a little smaller than I had pictured it to be, but still a wonderful purchase nonetheless. Perfect gift for those people that like rustic, handmade pieces and are tough to buy for.
I was very happy with the quality and the price of the Carved Soapstone chess set. It was reasonable priced and beautiful quality. Details of the chess pieces were wonderful.
