Chess, Backgammon & Games

Luke Honey is a leading specialist in chess sets, backgammon boards, mahjong sets and antique games, and (as a former auction expert at Phillips, Bloomsbury and Bonhams) has been selling antique chess sets (including the famous Staunton chess sets made by Jaques of London) since 1994. Antique chess sets are becoming increasingly scarce, and many of the sets we offer are rare and desirable. 

Please don't forget to revisit the website on a regular basis, as stock is updated as soon as new things are discovered. If you’re interested in consigning your chess set, backgammon board or antique game for sale, Luke would be delighted to hear from you. We offer a restoration service and also hire out stock as props to film production companies and stylists on a regular basis.
