I love the chess pieces for their simplicity and uncluttered beauty. The white and black (not really black) have good contrast - but most importantly - the pieces are a perfect match for the chessboard I made for my grandson. Also, I love the fact that two extra Queens come with the set.
So, why not 5 stars? Two (small) issues.
The pieces came in a cardboard box - I thought that that was disrespectful of the quality of the pieces, never mind the price. A small simple wooden box for the pieces would have added a great deal to the presentation.
The second issue is that a couple of the pieces rattle when you move them. Clearly, some of the weights placed into the bottom of the pieces have come adrift.
However, overall I am delighted with the product - and very happy with the service I received from the staff at Chess World
