Each drawer will hold 34 Staunton Pattern Chessmen (**Recommended - 3.25" King or less for the 1.75" square Tiroir and between 3.5"-3.875" King for the 2.25" square Tioroir) and has an additional compartment for holding draughts (checkers).
- GREAT chess set - just right! Review by JMG
Ordered the Rosewood chessmen option, which was the main reason for deciding on this set in the end. Wondered a bit about the Library size vs the similar Tournament size, but once I saw the Rosewood option - I wanted the real rosewood men enough to get the smaller set. Also thought twice about the Tirior for storage - but the lined and divided drawers are wonderful!
We are both thrilled with the quality, the heavy men (& esp. the rosewood) are indeed awesome, the board and drawers are great, & perfect for storage, and the size is fine! Very beautiful set with NO issues! (Posted on 12/30/2019)
