Unfortunately the box is too small to hold my pieces, the base are too large to fit. I bought it for Drueke Players Choice pieces.
I did not receive the box on the 14th and I paid $22 for shipping, but you guys refunded the shipping and I had the 16th in time for grandkids party. So I was happy.
I tried to save a few dollars and went with a more economical case. The base of my pieces must have been too wide for the case does not close all of the way. The slightest pressure almost popped the closure off. It would be perfectly adequate for pieces with more narrow bases. For me it was not the best choice. The box itself is nice but the insert feels like low grade felt glued over plastic molding. All that being said, I keep the case flat on a desk until I need it and it looks quite nice. For smaller pieces it would be 4.5-5 stars! The fault for this purchase lies with me, not Chess House. They continue to provide quality gear!
I've been told by a professional chess restorer that the last place you want to store an antique Jacques Staunton Chess set is in the box it was sold with! So I purchased this case to store them. It arrived quick, great communication, packed very well, and it looks beautiful. I can't wait to try it on my set when it comes back from restoration! Thanks!
FANTASTIC IN EVERY WAY
