This unique and exotic chess set is handmade in the Carpathian Mountains of Europe, and makes an excellent light weight travel companion. Players on the go will especially appreciate this distinctive folding travel chess set. Notice the intricate detail given to the crowns of the King and Queen. This is strictly traditional yet lends this set a truly unique appearance.
This fine chess set includes a wood chess board which doubles as a storage container for the chess pieces - the carrying case not only protects the pieces but also opens to serve as an algebraic chessboard! The King is a serious 2.3 inches tall and is, and like each of the chess pieces, made from Sycamore wood - known for its fine grain and excellent finish. The chess board is 11.75" x 11.75" for display at home or in the office. The interior of the storage compartment is lined with green felt which cushions the chess pieces for easy and safe transport. And of course the bottom of each piece is felt-covered to protect the wooden chess board from scratches. This chess set is wonderfully detailed, unique and decorative - small enough for travel and large enough for comfortable playing. You will enjoy many years of chess play
