These pieces are available in  ivory/white or natural for the light pieces.

    Appealingly designed, slightly "goofy" plastic set, decent quality

    Posted by Thomas M. on 6th Feb 2020

    I was surprised to find no reviews of this set. I ordered it with 5 other models from WSC, and they all arrived within less than 3 days of purchase (FedEx Priority to Germany). Speedy service, safe packaging - not one of the 204 chessmen was damaged in transit. My Zurich set is in "natural & burgundy" colours, both very nice. The "natural" colour is somewhere between dairy and creme, certainly not yellow - which I had feared. I greatly prefer the natural white pieces to the ivory ones - on any of the sets I ordered. Ivory does look more like hospital white. The Zurich Set is well made, the molding seams are certainly more than tolerable - only the halves of all four rooks had been mismatched in molding (thus, -1 star). Moderately weighted (the total set comes in at 1.3kg (2.9lbs) , the king is 65g. I find this slightly goofy design (especially the knights, but also the bulbous bishops' mitres and pawns' heads) very appealing indeed. This is a good general-purpose set for club/blitz play, since it's not *too* heavy. All pieces stand firmly on either wooden or silicone boards. Recommended!
