Rated 5 out of 5 by Ozzy Beautiful hand painted chess pieces and excellent customer support.
It really looks a lot better than bland metal/wood or marble chess pieces. Each piece is skillfully painted and makes the civil war figures stand out. The civil war theme also makes it easy to distinguish who is King, Queen, bishop, etc... The chessboard is also well made without any decorations or special carvings to make it stand out from other chessboards out there. Customer service is also excellent and will replace any piece that may come damaged. It may be durable with care but definitely more fragile than any wood/plastic/metal chess pieces that are not painted. Therefore, not suitable for small children that may throw the chess pieces and scratch the paint or break off a piece of a figure. I would definitely buy this again if I lost the chess pieces because it looks that good and I have no children that would abuse the chess set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuzyQ This is an amazing product with detailed workmanship.
This wonderful sculptured chess set is so detailed and such a lovely wedding gift for my friends, who are Gettysburg, PA lovers (The site of their engagement). The delivery was prompt with accuracy. The outer cardboard box was torn on arrival but the inside was well padded and thus protected.

I bought this set for a friend and never saw it, but I have another theme of my own from Toscano and am basing my comments on that as they are from the same maker.
He is thrilled with it.
