Exquisite Craftsmanship

The walnut chessboard serves as the perfect canvas for the minimalist pieces. Its rich, dark tones complement the natural hues of the Sheesham and Boxwood, creating a visually striking contrast that elevates the overall aesthetic of the set. The board itself is expertly crafted, with a smooth surface that allows the pieces to glide effortlessly from square to square.

In terms of craftsmanship, I have nothing but praise for the attention to detail exhibited by the artists. From the precise carving of each piece to the flawless finish of the chessboard, every element of this set speaks to the skill and dedication of the artisans involved in its creation.

Overall, I cannot recommend the Hermann Ohme Modern Minimalist Style Chess Set highly enough. It is a true masterpiece of design and craftsmanship, sure to delight chess enthusiasts and collectors alike. Whether displayed as a work of art or used for competitive play, this set is bound to become a cherished heirloom for generations to come.

Great Set

I have been purchasing this set for last 2 years now and I purchased over 5 sets so far and gifted to my friends and daughters. My grand sons and nephews love this set. It is so modern and minimal. Packing great and the ChessnBoards owner and employees take personal care of their product and customer. Great experience.

Thank you and appreciate your support Jennifer!
