We put a lot of study and careful thought into developing our Deluxe Chess Coffer so that it would fit the largest club size chess sets and well beyond. We also wanted this coffer with features deserving of the finest chess sets such as our Alexander Staunton, so we went the extra mile and used high quality billiard cloth for the lining and the best quality hardware we could find. Our Deluxe Coffer is the perfect way to store your prized chess set and we included 2 additional compartments for spare queens. It's not only a beautiful piece of furniture but it's the best way to store and protect your pieces. Our coffer has an upper and lower tray and we provide thick foam pads covered in billiard cloth that can be used hold the pieces in place when you close and lock the lid. Made from solid hardwood and veneers, we stained this a deep mahogany and it looks wonderful with any chess set or decor. The overall dimensions are 17" x 10.75" x 6.25". Collectors will love this coffer and it is less expensive than smaller, cheaper versions sold by other stores. Below are the dimensions of the compartments so you can determine if it will fit your chess set:
King: 2.25" wide narrowing to 2", x 5.625" long
Queen: 2" wide, 2" narrow, x 5.625" long
Bishop: 2" wide, 2" narrow, x 4.25" long
Knight: 2.5" wide, 2" narrow, x 3.875"
Rook: 1.875" wide, 2" narrow, x 3.375"
Pawn: 1.625" wide, 2" narrow, x 2.625"
2 1/4" x 5 5/8"
2" x 5 5/8"
4 1/4" x 2"
2 1/2" x 3 7/8"
1 7/8" x 3 3/8"
1 5/8" x 2 5/8"
Note: These measurements represent the widest dimensions for those compartments that taper to a narrower size.
This case is a superior case; solid, strong and a bit elegant. You dont have to have a grand set to use this but it is up to it.
I wont repeat the description but wood, felt and construction are all first class.RG
