Nice example of an original antique St George Chess Set. The St George Pattern was a standard pattern used in the Victorian period, and especially before the introduction of the Staunton pattern in 1849. It is similar in style to the so-called Old English pattern.

Chess sets like these would have been turned in country workshops across England.
