This is a beautiful chess set. The craftsmanship is superb. Each chess piece is hand carved and exquisite in its detail. Working with Jim was a pleasure. He was very good at keeping me updated. The set was delivered last night via UPS and it was clear that a great deal of care had been taken to protect it during shipping. It is a work of art and well worth your consideration.
