I purchased this chess set with the purple-heart gilded chess pieces and mahogany storage box. This chess set is absolutely beautiful. The chess pieces have a feel of great quality and very well balanced. Each chess piece comes individually wrapped, I inspected each piece for any blemishes or cracks and I'm happy to say that not a single blemish or crack was found. The chess board is quite large which makes for a nice display. It is also of great quality and workmanship, very smooth with very little blemishes in the wood finish and staining. Overall, I am very happy with my chess set and have spent many hours already teaching my kids to play. Don't hesitate to purchase this set. Great customer service, the answered all my questions before placing the order.
