A very nice chess set. The pieces are stylish and the board has the proper size (medium, not too small not too big). I will go one by one for this product.
1. The knight is of plane design and it has no eyes as shown in the image although ears are there, the pawns are thick and cute.
2. Queen pieces have lots of visible glue marks in CROWN area where diff color wood spheres are fixed but that is hardly noticeable.
3. There are no ABCEor1234 markings in the board to see the moves.
4. I would have loved to see some creativity in Bishop piece.
1. my concern with the product image was that i wont be able to differntiate between Rook and Bishop but in reality i can and the pieces are appropriately designed.
2. The pieces and board are of good quality and have soft padding in the bottom to prevent the scratching of the board.
3. The board is well polished and is flawless.
In the final words i would say the overall set and pieces are really good and wonderfully designed, i felt great playing on this board and is a MUST buy in this price range. i will give is 4 stars out of 5. An ideal gift for anyone interested in playing or learning chess!
