Beautiful wooden set at a very reasonable price! The shape is elegant and I like that it's raised in height. There are two drawers on each side to store chess and checkers pieces. The drawers are lined with felt to protect them. The pieces look hand carved. I particularly like the darker pieces and the base of the set as the wood is beautifully stained and has pretty light gold highlights in it. Would definitely recommend this set for an avid chess player.
This chess set is not what I expected, but turned out that my son loved it. I thought it would be bigger. To my surprise, the pieces are magnetic (guess I didn't read closely). I love that it holds the pieces underneath. My son was very satisfied. I just wish the pieces were bigger.
I purchased this chess set for my 9 year old Grandson. He & his twin sister are learning chess from my husband. They plan on joining the Chess Club at their school & the self-storing pieces in this beautiful set make transporting it to & from school very convenient. As it is such a attractive piece, it sits on the table in their home for 'spur of the moment' games!
