This handsome and sturdy walnut chess box is the perfect chess box for storing your chessmen. It has an old world-charm with its lock and key for securing the lid and an emerald green baize interior with a divider in the center for separating the two colors. This is an inlaid wood box with a beautiful walnut veneer on the outside finished with a satin polyurethane for a rich shine. High quality brass plated hinges and lock add to the attractiveness of this box. The bottom of the box is covered in with black felt to protect furniture where it might sit. This box will hold a set of typical 4" Staunton wood chessmen plus 2 spare queens.

    A very nice case formy new men

    Posted by Bob Spofford on 7th Feb 2022

    I recently purchased my first"serious" chess ser, classsic Staunton with a 4" king in walnut. This case is the perfect home for them: Simple, classic well-built with lovely workmanship and a classic feel. The 4" men, including extra queens, fit comfortably without rattling around, and the green lining is substantial and well-tailored. The whole kit is exactly what I was looking for.

    Lock mechanism very stiff. Appears to be adequate size.

    See above. 4 out of 5 since I believe lock mechanisms should be tested pre-shipment to the purchaser from The Chess Store (both keys). Both boxes have very stiff lock mechanisms, so this may be a production/testing concern.

    Nice match for my walnut / maple board, and my 4" paduk / boxwood pieces.

    This is a nice, neat, well-made lined walnut box that my 4" king set fits in. I got it because we adopted kittens, and they'd definitely love to play with my nice chess pieces if I let them! The finish is not high gloss or heavy, more like a hand-wiped job. There is a felt pad on the bottom of the box so I don't have to worry about it scratching my dresser. Note that my pieces don't fit if I stand them up. I need to lay them in on their sides, in a carefully-arranged jumble. It's fine for me because I'm very careful about my nice chess pieces. In sum, a nice way to organize my chess set on top of my dresser. It's a winner for me.

    holds a 3.25" set perfectly

    Posted by Sean on 16th Dec 2018

    I really like this box. I can hold my 3.25" set so that most pieces are standing up, but tight enough to keep them from shifting around too much. Holds the yugoslav perfectly.

    Lovely box.

    Very happy with the quality and look of the box. The only small problem was the locking mechanism does not work smoothly. Still happy with the purchase.
