    • Chess set features monochromatic shades of grey and black marble
    • Sophisticate chess game has hand-carved board and chess pieces

    Story Behind the Art:

    Odette Sierra is from the beautiful Mexican state of Puebla. Her father Edgar Sierra first opened their workshop 30 years ago. Their town is renowned throughout Mexico for its carvings in onyx and marble. Submerged in this artistic heritage, the Sierras began crafting parquet tables in onyx and marble. The art of sculpting marble and onyx demands patience and virtue, both of which have been cultivated over time in the Sierra Family workshop.

    • Beautiful Chess Set
      Verified Purchase

      I bought this for my husband's birthday and he absolutely loves it. It is exactly as pictured and the stone work is amazing. I especially love that there are variances between the pieces so you can tell they are carved by hand. None of the pieces arrived damaged, which I was worried about when I ordered it. We both love this chess set and it made a great gift.

    • For the prie it is great
      Verified Purchase

      It arrived in perfect condition. The board looked spectacular; however the black pieces were not as well polished well-they had a rough texture that did not watch the smooth white marble pieces. But for the price I got them at with the discount it is a steal! It will look great for the modern decor. Although since the board is small and pieces are made of marble I do not recommend it for serious chess players- if you are such you should stick to the wooden chess sets, but if you want something that can function as decor also this is perfect for any budget.

    • The marble is fragile
      Verified Purchase

      A piece broke off a piece as soon as it was used. They are fragile pieces. Lets say I wouldn't recommend it as a gift. Rather expensive for as fragile as it is.

      This wasn't bad but the two black bishops were severely damaged. I called and asked for 2 replacement ones however the company sent 2 black pawns and not bishops. Called back and am still waiting the delivery of the two black bishops.

    • Excellent product and shipment
      Verified Purchase

      A product like this is prone to being damaged, but this arrived in great condition due to being packaged with a remarkable amount of padding and care. The set itself is pleasing to have on the table and just big enough to feel substantial without taking up a ton of space. The only issue is a few sloppily attached felt pieces at the bottom of the chess pieces, but this is no big deal. Highly recommended.
