I love my new and Improved Lardy Chess Set from Royal Chess Mall. It takes me back to my early chess trnmt days in the early 70s. It has the contours and style of the original French Lardy sets from that era and was forever my favorite style. Thx Royal Mal for the new Improved French Lardy Chess Set!!
