The profile of the king, queen, and bishop is extraordinarily elegant. The king features a small, traditional formee cross. The queens crown is turned thick and has points that will withstand the rigors of being carried around in a box. The knights are slender with attractive features and a great deal of detail for a knight this size. The bishop miter is well proportioned has a wider than normal slot that is perfectly finished with rounded corners. The rooks stand even with knights nose and have a shallow parapet atop the battlement. The pawns are of average height with a larger than average bulb and a somewhat straight column.
