Customer Reviews
Unique, differentiated and iconic set. Review by Luiz de Brito
If the hatter (Alice in Wonderland) played chess, this would be his set. The horse and even the king give a comic value, but the bishop and the queen contradict, showing seriousness and clarity, especially when playing on the clock. This set is unique and only people who appreciate the arts will understand. The photos do not show every detail especially on the basis of the pieces that I've never seen the same. Actually, the work of the Indian master craftsmen was very good. I'm not tired of looking at the details! I can not play right now! (Posted on 2/28/2018)
