Wegiel Ambassador Chess Set Overview:

Chess Set – Ambassador High Detail European Wooden Handmade Set – 21″x21″ is a very nice set made out of wood and hand crafted in Poland.

Here’s a few other things you should know about this Chess Set.

Key Features of The Wegiel Ambassador European Chess Set:

This beautiful Chess Set is entirely made out of high quality wood; the chess board is made out of beech and birch wood, and the chessmen are made from hornbeam and sycamore wood. The figures are very detailed, hand carved and decorated by expect polish artists. The letters and numbers at each side of the board have been burnt into the wood, giving the board a very refined look.

The pieces are a good size, with the king measuring 4.5 inches (11cm), the Queen 3.66 inches (9.3cm) and the Pawns 2.28 inches (5.8cm), while the board squares measure 2.24 inches by 2.24 inches (5.7cmx5.7cm) each.

What People are Saying:

Many reviewers praise the quality of the chess board, which is carved with decorative flourishes, as well as having nice inlays for the squares. The fact that the letters and numbers are also inlaid was a surprise for many of them, since reviewers claim that the set looks better in real life than in pictures. Also, they say the Chess Set looks lovely wherever it is placed because of its fine handcraft and beautiful materials. Furthermore, many users say that they let children play with the set and both the board and the pieces are not damaged by rough play or handling, which is proof to them of the high quality of the product.

Some users complain about the plastic insert where you place the chess pieces inside the board while it is folded away; they feel the material does not match the high quality standards of the rest of the product, with many saying its low quality plastic, and worrying about how much time it will take for the plastic to tear or crack up. Others also complain about the lack of weight in the pieces, and while they appreciate the look of them, they state that they are too light and not sturdy enough. However, all of the negative aspects of the board are not enough to deter users from recommending the product to others.

If you are looking for an excellent price-quality Chess Set for you or your kids to play with, made out of the best quality wood and fancy looking, then this might be the right Chess Set for you. Find out more about Chess Set – Ambassador High Detail European Wooden Handmade Set – 21″x21″ below.
