This large single tray chess box we designed to hold and protect chess sets with kings up to 4" tall and especially those with fine detail and that have a glossy finish. There are thirty-four individual compartments designed for sets with extra queens. The foam tray is made from EVA which is a high-density foam that will withstand the weight of heavy chess pieces but is soft enough to dampen shock and protect fine detail on expensive sets. The box is made from heavy duty fiberboard and covered with an elegant black leatherette paper. The lid has our logo stamped in gold foil in the center and has a full length flap that is secured by hidden magnets under the paper. Compared to $400 or more for a wooden chess coffer, this is an exceptional value and protects the pieces even better because the compartments are softer and fully enclose the pieces. This box will provide the ultimate protection for your treasured chess pieces at an amazingly affordable price and look great too!

Compartment Sizes:

  • King: 4.25" tall x 1.75" wide x 1.75" deep
  • Queen: 3.75" tall x 1.625" wide x 1.75" deep
  • Bishop: 3.25 tall" x 1.625" wide x 1.75" deep
  • Knight: 3.25" tall x 1.75" wide x 1.75" deep
  • Rook: 2.625" x 1.5" wide" x 1.75" deep
  • Pawn: 2.25" tall x 1.25" wide x 1.75" deep


  • Overall Size: 16" x 16.75" x 2.625"
  • Material: Fiberboard covered with black leatherette paper, trays are made of EVA foam
  • Lid is secured by hidden magnets.

 Note: This box can be used for smaller pieces, but they will be more loose inside and possibly more difficult to get out. We do not recommend chess sets smaller than 3.75"

    Nice Storage Box

    Posted by Joseph on 16th Jul 2024

    I have been looking forever for a chess piece storage box for my treasured chess pieces. Something that was adequate and inexpensive. I finally came across this and it just arrived! I couldn’t be happier! It’s a little larger than I had expected, but it does the job. The box is nicely made, sturdy; and arrived unscathed. If you’re looking for a storage box to protect your pieces, this is a nice option

    I ordered this along with a set of pieces and I loved that i received the box with all the pieces stored in it already! The box looks good and feels sturdy and the foam inside feels much better than i expected! My 3.875" set fits it perfectly!

    Good for non-staunton style pieces, with large openings for unusual pieces. Good deal!

    Very Nice

    Posted by Lad on 1st Dec 2023

    Box is well made with magnetic closure. Compartments are good using a higher density foam. My king and queen onyx pieces fit, but a little snug, may have to use an Xacto knife to shave a little of the top for a looser fit height wise. Very satisfied with the look and construction.

    Chess box

    Posted by Kirt on 14th Nov 2023

    I think the box is a very good value. I did not give it five stars because it is not super fancy. This should last for many years and it did not cost very much money. Very happy with purchase.
