Finding a chess ornament is not as easy as others and this one is a winner. Nicely made and very cute!

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"

8/16/2014 -"I was excited awaiting my three orders, I always get that way, when waiting on my ornaments to arrive. As usual, they were even more beautiful, then they looked on line. I've been shopping the Ornament Shop for years started shortly after they opened for business. Never have had one I needed to return. They are fantastic, and the people who receives them as gifts, look forward every year to what I'm going to give them. Paulette P."

8/27/2014 -"I use this company every year! Love everything they have! Tamra P."

12/29/2013 -"Service was excellent, and the ornaments are outstanding, especially how they are creatively personalized. The road worker and the nutcracker character, Clara, were the BEST! There is so much detail on all of them, but these were most outstanding. I will be reordering the road worker because Tristan was so thrilled with it, he wanted to show his Papa , who was outside. It broke. We glued it, but I will buy another one to keep indoors! Nancy D."

10/6/2014 -"We received the shark Christmas ornament we ordered 10-3 arrived 10-6! Obviously well in time for Christmas but perfectly done and looking EXACTLY as we hoped. Our grandson will love it—if his parents can ever get him out of his Halloween shark costume! Thank you, JEFF P."

9/17/2014 -"I ORDERED SEVERAL ORNAMENTS AND HAD WRITTEN AN EMAIL WITH SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS ON PERSONALIZING. I RECEIVED MY ORDER AND THE ORNAMENTS WERE PERFECT.

9/25/2014 -"I have been collecting annual Christmas Ornaments for thirty years. Ornament Shop has been the only source for the last 4 years. Thank You Ornament Shop!!! Charles W."

12/26/2013 -"I just had to write to you to tell you how pleased we are with our Canoe Ornament. My husband and I canoed a river here in the back country of Maine this past summer that took us 5 days to complete. The trip was full of adventure and mishaps but we made it to the end and although we will never forget the trip...having the ornament is a wonderful reminder...as a matter of fact my husband said that the ornament is so nice that he would like to keep it displayed year round. I would also like to thank you for getting it to us for Christmas. I ordered it late not really expecting to have it for Christmas... It arrived in our mailbox on Christmas Eve! Wow! Because of your excellent service and products you can be sure that we will be ordering from you again. Blessings, Beth D."
