Nice quality but unexpected packaging

Well made, nice finish, nice color, nice felt covered base. The pawns are particularly nice and chubby.

The King and Queen are disproportionate to the rest of the pieces. When standing alongside her Bishop the Queen looks thin and puny, and the King as well. Both of these pieces need to be a bit taller and thicker to match the rest.

If you thought the pieces, at this price point, would come in a nice pouch or box, think again. They come jumbled together in two plastic bags stapled shut inside a foam lined cardboard box. So prepare to shell out for a nice box or pouch if you want to carry them around.
Also, if you expected this set to come with an extra Queen of each color, nope! The description is silent about this, and I had half hoped that at this price they'd be included, but, sadly... no.
