Chess Game Christmas Ornament

Personalized Christmas Ornament


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


Now you can get this ornament gift wrapped with a personalized gift card attached! Or, if you just need to let that special someone know who the gift is from, choose the personalized gift card option!

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!
