Okay, so the silver pieces are shiny and pretty, and the other half of the set really does look like a rubbed bronze. But. They are much lighter than I would have expected - heavier than plastic but not as heavy as weighted pieces, and there are occasional form lines running down some of the pieces. Again, a very pretty set, very useable, just not quite as good as I would have hoped.
That being said, I got them to go on a board that was inlaid with mother of pearl, and it looks spectacular all set up.
