Our 10 Inch Bookend Inlaid Golden Rosewood Chess Set fits perfectly on your book shelf - where it will never be misplaced!
Whereas most travel chess sets include a metal clasp at the front to close the set, we use magnets. The end result is that The folded set has a smooth uniform finish - there is no danger of snagging a metal clasp on fabric or even worse scratching a wood surface.
The outside frame of the set is medium to dark brown naturally patterned solid Sheesham wood. The 64 individual squares on the board surface are inlaid Maple on the light squares and Sheesham on the dark squares. All of the exposed wood is hand polished to make a smooth playing surface. Unlike cheaper folding sets with a lacquered finish, this surface of this set is neither reflective nor glossy.
This is a great set for a birthday gift. The 10 Inch size sells quite well. Please note that this is the only Folding Set that does not have a magnetic playing surface.
