Absolutely fantastic set - every bit as good as the website pics promised. Review by Dr_J

My Red Rum set arrived today, and in absolutely A1 condition, no problems at all - all securely packaged and arriving safely. The pieces are well colour matched, the bud rose pieces a lovely dark and consistent tone, and the boxwood pieces are very consistent too.

The carving of the knights is superb - very consistent and just as good as the photos. The pieces have a good solid weight - the bud rose pieces are slightly heavier, particularly the pawns, but that's as would be expected, and does not detract from the playing pleasure.

I paid the small additional charge for the lacquer finish and this is well worth it - it is well applied, not at all gloopy or overdone, and will both stop the bud rose pieces oxidising and will also prevent drying and shrinking, which should protect from cracking down the line (as much as can be expected).

I paired the set with the 60mm red ash burl board, and it's a fantastic combination with enough contrast to provide a good playing combination, but looking like a unified, luxury set.

As for the Red Rum set design - I spent many hours choosing my set, and feel my patience has been rewarded. i think it's one of the few luxury sets that retains a really elegant simplicity and doesn't look 'over-designed' - particularly the knights, but also the other pieces. All of the pieces are in perfect proportion, none look slightly out of place or lacking in some important detail (unlike in some other sets), and the weighty rooks provide good contrast to the slim 'decanter' shape of other pieces and so brings clarity to a busy board - it's a real player's set.

The delivery (3-4 working days to the UK) and comms with the sales people, who answered my inquiries efficiently and knowledgeably, were first rate. Tracked at every step of the way by DHL and with me in well under a working week.

Genuinely couldn't be happier with my purchase, particularly for the price I paid for this outstanding set. Thank you Chess Bazaar! (Posted on 7/10/2018)

A beautiful chess set. The carving on the knights is terrific. The pieces are all matched perfectly. The coloring of the rosewood pieces is nice and dark and red. It looks as good in person as it does on the website. Packaging was amazing. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them. (Posted on 7/22/2017)
Perfection! Review by Mitch

I ordered this set as a gift for a colleague who was retiring after many years service within the education sector. I chose the Red Rum luxury staunton series chess pieces in bud rose / box wood because my colleague has a connection with the UK, horse racing - and a love of chess.
I hadn't opened the box before the farewell function, trusting instead the quality and craftsmanship which Chess Bazzar are renowned for.
I was delighted, and so was the recipient!
Everybody thought the pieces beautiful and of the very best craftsmanship.
I'm saving for a set of my own now. Thanks Chess bazaar
