If you know more, then please let me know...
This "travel" set was bought recently with the main reason that I have a travel set with exact the same pieces, which was bought in the Netherlands in 1948. See my Travel (Netherlands) 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.

Not much can be said about this plastic travel set in the Staunton style. This kind of sets were often used as advertisement items. There is some logo - a chess board in a caliper - on the outer plastic shell, but I do not know the meaning of it. I have seen a picture of the same logo on a chess board in a discussion forum on chess.com, but without explanation.
