This chess box is no ordinary box - it is thoughtfully designed with limited production for those who truly value quality. It has been expertly handcrafted by skilled craftsmen in the USA, and it has a smooth furniture finish that is simply delightful to the touch.
As soon as it arrives, you will feel the quality of the genuine hardwood and appreciate its lovely scent.
Uniquely, this box allows pieces with a King of up to 4" tall to stand inside while the box is closed.
The box has a beautiful maple-framed walnut lid and front thumb pull, and a felted bottom to protect any surface it is placed on. You can also match it with solid walnut and maple chess boards, which are available separately, making it the perfect gift for special occasions like anniversaries or as a family heirloom to pass down to future generations.
