Good weighted antique Jaques set with a 4 ½ inch king. In an antique, unlabelled mahogany box of the same period.

Jaques was founded in 1795 and from 1849 held exclusive rights over the famous Staunton chess set design. Considered by collectors to be the “Rolls-Royce” of chess manufacturers, Jaques chess sets and boards are now avidly sought after by collectors and players.
