I guess one gets what one pays for..
This set made it to us in less than a week and looks great set up in the living room. It has so much character, its too cool to keep in the closet.
This is a very beautiful chess set, including a nice board. I think that, for this level of price, this is the better choice. Good to play (it is not always true for artistic sets), very ornamental (sometimes, a standard stauton pieces are considered something boring - although I personally disagree) and easy to store or to carry. The missing star in my classification is due to the weight of the pieces: they could be heavier.
It's just Awesome, and i received it in 4 days ! I am impressed, i live outside the US in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, it came in a neat box protected :)
