Retired and new to Chess, just learning now I have time.
After much research, I found that a Staunton set is the most common design, so I purchased a weighted plastic set, nice enough to learn on.
Then as I got more interested, started to desire a nice Wooden set, again after research settled on Royal Chess Mall.
They have a great range of handmade pieces that look amazing, however I was drawn to this 3.6” Pro Staunton weighted golden rosewood set of pieces. Ordering was straight forward, comms great, tracking details great, and the pieces arrived on the day as per tracking update, ordered and delivered in 11 days to Australia.
Simply beautiful, amazing detail, feel so nice, I am very happy, thank you to the craftspeople who made them.
I already had a nice wooden board which you can see in the pictures of the set displayed in my Living Room.
