This handsome and sturdy macassar ebony 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 macassar 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 is designed for small sets and will hold a set of typical 4" or smaller (king height) wood chessmen plus 2 spare queens.

I purchased this Macassar Ebony Chess piece box with the New Exclusive Staunton Chessmen (3 inch king). The woods of the box are beautiful and nicely compliment the Ebony and African Padauk chess pieces. The Green Baize Lining is luxurious and the lock works well. A nice addition to store quality chess pieces. Jason Curtis
