Small messenger-bag-sized plastic chess set and board

Details

The board is about 35cm square, individual squares 4cm and King height 7cm+ (3").
I find it ideal for a laptop bag or briefcase which is usually too small for a standard set folding board with 5cm squares and a 3½" King.
I got it from my esteemed colleague and friend Tim Onions: [OnionsChess http://onionschess.co.uk/]

Chess Quotes

"THE KING
The King himself is haughtie care,
Which ouerlooketh all his men,
And when he seeth how they fare,
He steps among them now and then,
Whom when his foe presumes to checke,
His seruants stand, to giue the necke.

  THE QUEENE
The Queene is queint, and quicke conceit,
Which makes her walke which way she list,
Ans rootes them up, that lie in wait,
To worke hir treason ere she wist:
Hir force is such against her foes,
That whom she meets, she ouerthrowes...

— Nicholas BRETON (1542-1626), The Chesse Play.
