In short it's a good solid chess set, nice woods, well weighted and felted pieces, good size, but not quite as 'premium' as the price suggests.
I bought this as a Christmas gift for a family member and when checking it prior to wrapping it,I noticed that the base of one pawn wasn't quite flat but not wanting to have to return the otherwise perfect set and hang arround for a replacement I phoned the UK manufacturer/distributer whose name was on the packaging to ask if they could just post us another pawn - the response was absolutely brilliant,they did not ask me to return the piece for inspection first but simply said that they would send me a replacement which I was pleasantly surprised to receive the very next day by first class post.
I usually allways try to view and feel the product before buying, a few photos
does not tell you a lot.
There's a games store I visited and they had a large selection of chess sets,
and this set was one of them. They had one on display and I like the set, it tick
all the right boxes.
I wanted a large size Staunton style wooden chess set.
The quality of the craftsmanship of each piece is excellent.
They are weighted and feel solid, also felted on base.
There are very slight colours variations, due to the natural grain of wood.
This makes the pieces stand out and gives a marble effect especially the tan set.
The folding board is veneer without any gaps. It is well made and the hinges are
conceal no screws showing. The back is felted and when the board is open up flat
you can hardly see the join.
The case is not leather, but looks and feels like it. It's well made and the white stitching makes it stand out. There are three compartments, not sure why
maybe one for straights. The chess pieces come with two cloth type bags with drawstrings.
I would like to have had inlays for chess pieces instead of bags, I have put in some foam inserts to hold pieces.
It is a lovely solid wooden set and more than happy with it.
stored - the pieces in two draw string bags - the whole set in a neat faux leather case for storage and for easy carriage. Wooden Chess set with 3.5" KingA great looking,neat chess set.
This is a set I definitely wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a good quality set. I don't regret the purchase and I am sure any other buyers won't either.
