Concave Staunton Chess Set
As good as its name may sound, this chess set is not exactly a work of art. A good chess piece connoisseur will find the overall design inferior. Even the knights, pieces that normally have more intricate decorations, are given few brushes of carvings here and there to simply distinguish it from other chess pieces. The knight at first impression does not even look a horse; it looks like a dog sans the eyes! While the materials used are good (chidar and sheesham), the craftsmanship is found wanting, giving each piece a mediocre look--definitely not a chess set worth having. Go for a slightly priced set that can give both quality and style.
