This is literally the best chess set on earth (as I found it by looking up “best chess set in the world”). The craftsmanship of the pieces is impeccable, and the most beautiful I’ve seen. I did have some problems with shipping. We paid extra for it to be delivered by my birthday (which it did not), but fortunately Chess House’s customer service is amazing and they refunded it immediately. Chess House checked in every day to see where the package where the package was until it got here. The only problem with the product is that the glaze scratches very easily. It already had one or two blemishes when it was delivered, which isn’t too bad, but after only a little more than a week it had about six or seven even though it has been handled very carefully. That being said, Chess House handled all our issues excellently. I strongly recommend you to purchase the pieces (maybe buy a different board). Chess House will definitely be getting more business from me. Thanks for making my birthday a special one Chess House!!
