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, which sits on top of fitted storage for the pieces when not in use. All this is framed in a beautiful wooden border. Measures 6.5" x 6.5" with border, 5" x 5" without border. King height is 1" and squares measure 0.5".
