Smooth contours on these cheerful retro chessmen speak elegance and the felt bases protect the board surface. The standard size 3 3/4" chess pieces are great for a casual game, and most certainly a tasteful talking piece paired with the right board.
Fun for the collector. A delight to play.

At the last minute, my husband told me he wanted a chess set for Christmas. I found a locally made chess board and wanted some unique pieces to go with it. These pieces fit the bill. They are a great size, feel nice in your fingers, are beautiful to look at, and are nicely weighted at the bottom. My husband loves them and wants to display them all the time! I'm really pleased with the pieces and the Gary shipping.
Wonderful pieces. Some people who have seen these call them "Hourglass" or "Mid 20th century modern art." They're bigger than I expected, especially the pawns and look good on a board with 2 1/4" squares as well as 2" squares. These pieces feel great and handle well and there's no mistaking what each piece is. I waited several months for these to come back, well worth the wait. Grab one while you can.
Pieces are beautiful, made a great gift. Shipped super fast and customer was really helpful when I placed the order over the phone.
