A true tribute to 19th Century Classical Staunton Chess model Review by Radu

Have recently discovered Chesbazaar.com. I can say Chesbazaar is a serious and modern enterprise who operates a very good working platform, from the manufacture to customer contact and shipping to the end buyers.
To me, it looks like a company that is constantly evolving.
After much consideration, I have ordered The Antique 19th Century Early Staunton Chess Set in Ebony & Antiqued Boxwood with King Side Stamping - 3.4" King. I took advantage of the October sale and I got a very good price. The delivery time (from India to Romania) as stated on their site was very well respected and items were carefully packed. The package arrived straight to my door in Bucharest without any problems.
Pieces look great, very well machined, knights finely carved. Eyes, ears, teeth, nostrils, typical Staunton cuts are all well done. Well-balanced design. The proportions between pieces were mindfully kept. I don’t like, for instance, chess sets were rooks (towers) – which are strong pieces in the game – are too small compared to knights and bishops, almost resembling pawns (like in some ‘French’ sets). Pieces have large bases. I even checked on the extra ebony queen to see how the weight was laid. I removed the green felt and then I scratched away a plaster/cement layer to reveal the weight which looks like good old led. Excellent! And the ebony is genuine too!
Both the boxwood (for the white pieces) and the ebony (for the black) used for this set are quality wood.
I'm very happy with this purchase. I will surely buy again from Chessbazaar, I already have a couple of other chess sets saved at Favorites. (Posted on 11/9/2018)
