This Italian-import travel set is as fancy as compact chess sets get! The pieces are solid metal with magnets set in the bottoms to attach to the leather-bound board with gold trim. The board sits on top of fitted storage for the pieces when not in use. All this is framed in beautiful Briarwood to evoke a feel of true elegance. Measures 7" x 7" with border, 5" x 5" without the border. King height is 1" and squares measure 0.5".
