  1. Beautifully Carved Pieces

    Posted by Marc on Apr 23rd 2022

    Large bases provide exceptional stability and these are the heaviest pieces of "non-weighted" DGT sets (25.2 oz). A nicely carved chess set, with a similar attention to detail seen in the Royal set; the only flaw being a less than perfect job of applying the black felt . White pieces are actually quite yellow and have a glossy appearence. There are slight variations in color of the yellow pieces. The black piece have a hazed-black appearance (compared to gloss black). The pawns have a large diameter head as do the bishops and rooks. The queen's crown is highly detailed with nine points. This particular design has a knight that stands at the same height as the bishop making it appear more prominent than in many other chess designs. Anyone familiar with the DGT Plastic set will see the similarity it has with this wooden Classic set.
    The pieces arrived with most of the larger pieces protectively wrapped, the pawns and knights were not.
    One star off for the felt application, which I redid in red.
