It was easy to order and arrived quickly but I found the quality to be less then desired. Part of the black lines between the squares was missing and the clear finish seamed flopped on on some pieces and all the pieces don't fit in their spot very well. Some fit just fine but others only sort of fit. For the amount of money I thought it would be better made.
While the chess pieces themselves are nice, the board had a very strong lacquer odor and the compartment lining for storing the pieces was cheap and cracked in several places. Was disappointed.
