Chess Game Christmas Ornament

Personalized Christmas Ornament

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!

9/20/2018 - "Our gift to our granddaughter is a beautiful Ruby ornament with her nickname and birthday on it. We gave it as a trinket gift for her wedding as they begin their first Christmas together and think we will get her husband one later. We had some delay with the post office, it had nothing to do with OrnamentShop.com, and usually our post office is perfect. We had the luxury of meeting two of the companies customer care people. Their photos were on the screen, so after a few emails I feel they are almost friends. They couldn't have been kinder. Long story short, our son, the brides' father, had a heart attack and left for the hospital right after the ceremony. He is doing well after having 4 stents put in his heart. I told these sweet girls all about it and they sent me such caring emails so I not only have this beautiful ornament for our Bride granddaughter, but I feel I have 2 friends praying and caring about our family and me. Who would have thought a mailing issue would give me so much good. Thank them and give them a raise. They are wonderful people. John"

I have 25 great grandchildren, This is my first order only have 19 to go. I’ll be watching for you next sale. When you offered to change the color of the hair for the trumpet boy, I told you I was in no hurry as I didn’t need them until next Christmas. Wow! Thank you so much, I’m such a satisfied customer! June Y."
