Looks as good, and in some ways better
Than many of the Amritsar manufacturers
My only negative is it could be slightly heavier weighted..but that aside
I'm happy with the reproduction.
This Austrian Coffeehouse set is stunning. The pieces were meticulously crafted, perfectly weighted, and beautifully polished. I couldn’t be happier with this set and with this vendor. Great experience, highly recommended!
I had some doubts about spending this much money but in fact it was well worth it. These chess pieces are beautiful and high quality. They also arrived here in Italy within a couple of days of ordering. Thank You
Beautiful pieces. Unusual, lovely detailing but doesn't distract when playing
