- An ever-so-slight departure from traditional Staunton design Review by Sir Glenn
- This is a wonderful set for the collector who prefers a distinctive chess set for a modest price without having to in purchase a more expensive exotic wood for the dark pieces. Such a nice diversion from plain old monotone light and dark pieces! (Posted on 3/1/2014)
