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!

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 not correct.

1/4/2018 - "Hurricane Harvey flooded my GD's high school. The students had to be bused to a different high school, approximately 30 miles distance. I wanted to find a Christmas ornament that would remind my GD of this unusual experience - when I saw the school bus ornament, I knew it would be just perfect. Originally I was told it wouldn't be shipped until after Christmas, on Dec. 29, but she received it the day after Christmas - just in time for our family gift exchange. My granddaughter LOVED the ornament!! Everyone thought it was SO cute! This darling bus ornament will always be the perfect reminder to my GD of what a strange year her 10th grade was - thanks to Hurricane Harvey!! Thanks again for good customer service and quality merchandise! Claire B."

I also was extremely pleased with the communication from the Ornament Shop about my purchase. I was extremely pleased with the variety of options I found.

12/26/2017 - "I really love that you have ornaments with more then 8 possible personalizations on them at a time. I also like that individual names do not have limited spaces for longer names.Roxanna P."

10/8/2017 - "Hear Ye, Hear Ye, I am extremely satisfied w/the ornament that was personalized by the Ornament Shop personnel. I have been purchasing award/gift items from Ornament Shop for many, many years. Their quality of service has always been "Above and Beyond". "The Few...The Proud" fit on the first line of the base. During the purchase phrase I added a note to the Personalizing Department. I wrote: "LCpl Jacob Ross Detachment IF NOT LCpl Jacob Ross Det.". To my amazement when the ornament arrived they had placed on the bottom line of the base the entire text. The print was completed in such well organized and thought out manner. I have never been unsatisfied when opening a well protected and carefully packed gift. The one time that I required text that was too long for an item I received a phone call from Customer Service. The technician was extremely courteous and helpful. We came to an agreement, the ornament was ordered w/the new text and it arrived quickly in the mail. By the way the shipping cost are very reasonable; if you order(5) or more items the shipping cost is free; see details. The Ornament Shop carries many branches of the Military; what better way to say: "Thank You For Your Service" to the Men and Women who are serving/have served Our Country. With all due respect, Charles Edwards Semper Fi Charles E."
