  • Includes Staunton style wooden chessmen with 1.75 inch kings.
  • Felt-lined storage compartments inside.
This beautifully made magnetic chess set features a folding clamshell design, and includes a full set of Staunton-style magnetic wooden chessmen. Luxury quality with the convenience of portability.

Crafted from solid Babul and boxwood, this striking chess set feels sturdy and will give years, if not decades, of enjoyment. These magnetic chess boards are some of the finest travel chess sets that we offer, and have become hugely popular due to their versatility. With the clamshell or bookend design allowing for safe storage and transportation of the wooden chessmen and minimizing the footprint of the set, it is ideal for play on the go. However no sacrifices are made in any aesthetic or material quality for its portability. It's just as suitable for use and display in the home!

Expertly crafted from individual squares of wood and fitted with concealed metal for ‘playing on the move’, each square is 2mm thick and inlaid precisely and perfectly. Despite its size, its creates this beautiful playing area for the chess men. Whilst they are not weighted, the chess pieces have been crafted following the traditional Staunton style and retain a fantastic level of detail.

The bases of the Staunton style chessmen are magnetic and felted, which allows for them to adhere to the board for use on a train, car or plane journey. The felt bases are added to protect the beautiful, matt-lacquered surface of the board from any scuffs or scratches. Overall, this is a chess set with a very special, versatile feel to it. Finished to a very high standard, this stunning set boasts two additional queens for promotion and would make an ideal gift for any chess enthusiast.
