    Verified Purchase

    This was purchased for a 14 year old young man who has been playing chess for about 6 years. He has started to collect chess sets and I was looking for something a little more sophisticated and elegant but rugged enough to withstand multi-game tournaments. I found that in this product. It is beautiful and wonderfully crafted. The wooden 'table' is a hinged case with a cushioned velvety interior with individual slots for the soapstone pieces. The chessmen are individual works of art. There is a note inside stating that each piece is hand crafted, caveat emptor in your belief of this, however true or not they are amazing to behold. The size of the pieces is perfect for a moderately advanced novice to start using. Each different man is easily distinguished from the others and that is important not to have a pawn and a bishop who resemble each other too greatly. This is an elegantly crafted sophisticated chess set that handles easily and is compact enough to travel and has become the favorite chess set to date.

    Verified Purchase

    The chess set was a replacement gift to my oldest son. Who did not receive one a Christmas (ordered from a different establishment) it turned out better than the one's I purchased for my other children. Very elegant.

    I was looking to purchase a chess set for my friend's daughter for her birthday. I went on Overstock.com and found a nice selection from which to choose. I had the chess set delivered to my friend's home which made it very convenient since I could not be there for the birthday party. Very easy, great selection and quick and cheap delivery - all around, a great experience. I will definitely use Overstock.com again.

    I was a little uneasy about my purchase at first because of the price...you know, you get what you paid for. But this chess set surpassed even my hopeful expectations. It's absolutely beautiful and looks like I paid 3 times the amount I did.

  • Two gifts for one price
    Verified Purchase

    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!

  • A bit smaller than expected
    Verified Purchase

    I had seen reviews where there were problems with the chess set arriving damanged, but mine was well packed and arrived without damage. The set is nice, but the pieces are a bit smaller than I had anticipated. All in all I would say this is well worth the money. I bought it for my husband's birthday and he really liked it.

  • India - Soapstone Chess Set
    Verified Purchase

    I was very impressed with the quality of the chess set that was sent. It was beautifully made and the pieces were kept in a soft protective coating, each carved very nicely. The only minor hitch was that the top of the black king and queen were slightly scratched leaving a white mark against the black paint. Despite that the peices were beautifully made and the carving was exceptional, in addition the playing board is well designed and put together and holds the pieces well.

    This was suppose to be a gift but I changed my mind after receiving it! Due to the fact it looked like someone else had been using the set with all the scratches and nick on it. Didn't want the person to think I was giving them something used.
