Chess Game Christmas Ornaments

Personalized Christmas Ornament

$11.95

SKU: RU12026

Checkmate! This shield shaped ornament depicts the black and white squares of a chessboard and three chess pieces. The white chess pieces shown are the knight, king and bishop. Chess enthusiasts study the game and learn the methods of sacrificing pieces to attack and win the game that has been around since the 6th century. This game is popular all over the world and before the internet, people often played games by mail, posting one move at a time, anxiously waiting for the post office to deliver their opponent's position. Chess tournaments are still played even though computers have replaced the need for an opposing player, and a computer even beat a chess world champion in 1997!

Dimensions: 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Material: Resin
NOTE: This is not a toy. It is not suitable for children to play with.

Designate the Year

Putting the year on an ornament nicely commemorates your special gift. If you want the year included, & there’s no box showing where we’d place it on the front of the ornament, use the drop down box and select the year. We’ll add it on the front if possible; otherwise we'll put it on the back

Confirmation

We personalize your ornament just the way you request, so please carefully review your information. Once your order is placed, we are unable to cancel, change personalization, combine orders or make exchanges.



Ornaments shown on our site are personalized, as examples only, so you can see where we put the words/names you give us. Some ornaments allow you to select hair or uniform color. If there is no color choice, it is not available on that particular ornament. We will do everything possible to catch any mistakes in spelling, etc., but are not responsible if we do as you request, and it is then not correct. The ornament you see above is the way it will look when you get it, except for the personalizing instructions you give us and any optional attributes you select.
I am committed to delivering our customers the greatest selection of unique, personalized Christmas ornaments and gifts on the internet! We have over 5000 Christmas ornaments to choose from, each personalized with a name or special greeting from you!

11/26/2013 -"I received my order yesterday. Gosh, the turn around time is amazing. All 3 ornaments are perfect! The new home ornament really turned out nice and it is for a housewarming gift over Thanksgiving weekend. I did not expect to get a box for the baby boy ornament so thank you and that also will be a special keepsake for the new parents. As always, you are a pleasure to deal with and I've never had a complaint. I would never get ornaments anywhere else. As I've told you before, I love the fact that you can include middle names on personalization- something that other companies do not offer. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone at Ornament Shop. Kathy W."

I buy them to commemorate something special that has happened in my children's lives that year and I think I have created something really special. Every year now they can't wait to open them. My one son has called them a unique life's storyboard. I however just have fun deciding each year what to choose. Thank You for the broad spectrum of ideas from which to choose, and thank you for being a part of our family each Christmas. Sincerely, Marylu A."
