Rated 1 out of 5 by Jeannie99 Too small and too delicate to play....
I ordered the set for my son who loves chess but regretfully the pawns are so delicate that one dragon pawn came with its neck snapped. Also, when we set up the board to play anyway, the board was way too crowded to even visualize moves as the board dimensions were too small and the pieces too tall and top heavy. Overall, disappointing but after two calls Toscano did say they were going to send UPS form for me to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susi Ultimate Historical Chess Set
This Medieval Celtic Chess set was certainly worth the wait. It was ordered in early November 2013 to be used as a Christmas gift for my son. When informed that delivery was to be delayed until April, it was disappointing but I ordered it anyhow and got my son a contemporary chess set, which was actually more up his alley.
When the Medieval Celtic Chess set arrived in April as promised, it was perfect for my traditional music room. It sits importantly on an occasional table along side my Royal Dolton figurines (similar era). Our leather tub chairs are ready to seat chess opponents and/or an audience for our Antique Baby Grand Piano.
The chess set is compact yet exquisitely crafted in the most minute detail of shape, form and colour. I love it and am thrilled it was delayed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tucson Small chess board w/ easily breakable pieces
This chess board is beautiful but the squares are too small for the pieces. The package arrived w/ several broken pieces. Overall, the board needs to be bigger. It is too small to play a game. This chess set is more for decoration, but even then, the pieces are squeezed together because the squares are too small to fit them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by McERSKINE this chess set has nice details
The chess set pieces were very nice and looked very nice, however a couple of pieces were broken and are going to be replaced. I did appreciate the prompt no hassle response to replacing the damaged pieces. The chess board itself is a little undersized for the base of the pieces,,,,but it is a very nice set to add to my collection.
