Unknown-travel  (Other European)

Set listed below is of Unknown origin.
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.

  • unknown origin (England or Germany?)
  • ca. 1950
  • Plastic 1.4 (2.1 with pin)
  • Box 20.1×13.6×3.2
  • Board 12.2×12.2

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, with a chess motive, on the outer plastic shell, but I do not know the meaning of it.
