This handsome and sturdy mahogany 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 mahogany 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 love it. I should have bought one a little larger. The fastener is a little flimsy. I would recommend it to others. Not finding a board I have decided to build one with 2 inch squares. The ceramic chess set that my mother made for me when I graduated from high school in 1959 fits in it rather tightDave Smith Arlington Tx.
