Finding a chess ornament is not as easy as others and this one is a winner. Nicely made and very cute!
Perfect for my Boy Scout who earned his Chess Merit Badge!
There are not many chess ornaments to choose from. My son loved this!
I've never seen a chess ornament before and it fit just perfect.
This gift was well-received. The receiver tutors our son in chess, and this gift was perfect. He loved it!
Everything I ordered is great - I am very pleased.

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!
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
Price tags will be removed, gift will be wrapped with a hand-written card added. If it’s to be shipped to a separate address, we will ask you for it during checkout.
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.
8/19/2014 -"I have purchased ornaments for all my family over the past several years. Currently that is a total of 15 ornaments, and the family keeps growing. Each person who receives them is absolutely delighted with the colors, and the personalization. The many choices given and the time saved is certainly a plus also. Thank you! They arrive on time and in perfect condition. Anonymous Respondent

Just a quick note. You may recall my order, all the "State Troopers" and few office worker ornaments. The Trooper ornaments went over very well, I would tell you that one of the ladies with the figure in front of a computer, actually cried and we were not sure if they were tears of joy or sadness. Luckily they were for joy, and she said she had never gotten such a lovely gift before. So, your ornaments were a success for many Troopers and staff with the Florida Highway Patrol.

12/3/2013 -"Hello Diane,
I just wanted to take the opportunity to tell you how much I love ordering your Christmas ornaments. I have been sending them to all of my nieces and nephews ever since they have started their own families. I usually have to add a new family member to each ornament as the years pass. This is now a tradition for us and they look forward to receiving them every year.
8/25/2014 -"I have purchased ornaments from Ornament Shop.com for 4 or 5 years. I have 6 grandchildren ranging in ages from 11 - 25 and have been purchasing Christmas ornaments since they were born. I look for ornaments that have something to do with their interests, or where they are in their lives at this particular time. i.e., college freshman,(college boy) aspiring music teacher (guitar), lover of horses (brown horse w/saddle), coach (lacrosse equipment), golfer/caddy(golf green) and stylish lady (lovely high heels).
I find the selections fantastic and better every year. I especially like the personalization that I have been able to place on each ornament. I hope my grand kids place these ornaments on their own Christmas trees someday and know each will bring back fond memories. Ann F."
