Nice example of an unweighted antique Jaques set, with a 3 ½ inch king. Jaques held the original patent for the “Staunton Pattern” (first registered 1849) and ther trademarked sets are becoming increasingly desirable and sought after.

Would make an unusual present for a keen chess player with taste.
