The pieces are fine with just a couple of imperfections. One of the knights' eyes is noticeably out of line and one of the little balls on the Queen's crown is crooked. At the risk of sounding contrived, these don't bother me because they just go with the feel of the set. It's not supposed to be pristine and imperfections just reinforce the handmade feel of it.
The pieces are lighter than expected but weighty enough for comfortable play. They stay in place surprisingly well when inside the box too. I was expecting them to have fallen about when turning the board around but they are held in place well by the lining inside the board. The lining is nice to look at if a bit plasticky to touch but like I said, it does the job well.
For the price you pay, it's a very nice set.
There seems to be something wrong with the set though, as the children are starting to beat me on an increasingly regular basis...
In terms of storage, the chess board folds in half and the bottom side has spaces for each individual piece in a felt box meaning it is easy to store everything without too much risk of losing any pieces!
Packaging on arrival was also as described in a white box - the only downside to the purchase was that one of the squares had quite a large scratch in it which although we can live with, it is a shame.
