Incredible for the money.
Beautiful way to keep chess pieces from knocking each other up without spending as much on a storage box as the original pieces cost.
Way better storage per dollar than anything else.
Attractive, classy, great protection.
I have bought other boxes for more that look cheaper and smell like a toxic chemical spill.
Large Bubinga Coffer Chess Box, a Great Value !

Very pleasantly surprised when this coffer style chess box arrived. At almost $200 less than the HOS coffer box, and less $ than many medium size chess boxes, I thought when I ordered it that perhaps this box was a factory second or of poor quality. Absolutely not! This is a beautiful and well constructed coffer chess box, but at a value price. It has a deep glossy lacquer finish similar to a grand piano, uses quality brass fittings and is structurally solid. It arrived in absolutely perfect condition thanks to Whole Chess's typical excellent shipment packaging.
The only functional difference between this coffer box and the HOS box, is that the HOS has two removable trays. This one has one removable tray on top for 17 pieces and the remaining 17 pieces have their own individual compartments at the bottom of the coffer box. For a cost savings of almost $200, I can give-up the second tray.
I have one good boxwood and ebony chess set that I have been wanting to maintain in a coffer box. But, previous choices of coffer style boxes cost as much, and some more, than my chess set! Luckily, this box was the perfect choice for me.
A very nice chess box

The box is very well made and an excellent addition to my chess equipment. I purchased this item rather than those similar to it for the individual slots for each piece. I would have preferred something in more muted color / wood, but it is well worth the purchase price.
This box is BEAUTIFUL!

The box is obviously well made from gorgeous wood. The compartments are generous to accommodate larger size sets and the inside felt lining is excellent. The only reason I did not give this box 5 stars is the locking mechanism—it is difficult to lock and seems like a second rate lock, compared to the rest of the storage unit.

This box is well-made from beautifully grained bubingawood. The fit and finish are excellent. The compartment trays are equally detailed and fitted.
This box at this price (50% less than comparable items) is a true bargain.
Worthy of your finest pieces, no doubt.
Outstanding quality. Exceptional price.

This is by far much better than the picture shows. I was so impressed, I bought 2 more. The customer service is the best. They are very professional and very kind. I will refer everyone interested I Chess supplies. Simply the best purchase experience I have had.
Beautiful ! Functional !

I bought the Fianchetto chess pieces and want to protect them while being stored, this is a nice chess storage box with individual felted slots, no piling on top of each other in this one. This box also looks classy !
Photos do not do justice to the quality of the finish

I just needed a coffer for one of my 4 inch sets and the price was so low that I bought two.
The finish is much nicer then in the photos. Just the right amount of shine and sheen.
It was large enough to fit my 5 inch set, although the space for the pawns was a bit tight.
Highly recommend it.
Awesome Quality Coffer Box at a Great Price ...Beautiful!

I was so very pleased with this box which holds my House of Staunton 4inch Collectors Red/Ivory Lacquered Set. It was double boxed and packed extremely well. The wood is gorgeous and the box is much larger than I thought it would be ... can't imagine someone needing a larger box for any practical collector set.
This box is a real value for most collectors who, for whatever reason, didn't or couldn't get a box with their valued Chess Set when they first bought it.
I Highly recommend this box to anyone wanting great quality, beauty, and value!
