Frankly, I had thought the chess set would be larger - which is what I was interested in. This set, while attractive, has pieces that are much too small for me. I would love to trade this set for one with larger pieces . Also, because the pieces are so small, it's more difficult to distinguish between them. The board is beautiful but, again, small.
