This small "Chess and draughts" set was a gift of a member of my chess club. He had bought it in the Netherlands in 1948. Recently I bought a travel set of unknown origin with exact the same pieces. See my Unknown-travel (Othereurope) page. Jaques did sell travel chess sets in a leather case with exactly the same pieces. The pieces must have been made by the same manufacturer, but unclear is who that is.

Throughout my life as collector I got a bunch of travel chess sets. Here you see a number of them. All are cheap plastic sets, except for the last, which is a small multiple games set in wood. Of the 2nd I do have a set from Austria as well. See Travel (Austria) page.
