A nice example of an antique 19th century Jaques Staunton chess set in a non-related, non-Jaques (but antique) box.

Reference: Sir Alan Fersht, Jaques and British Chess Company Chess Sets, 2010, page 14, figure 1: note the similarity of the knights to the two knights illustrated, both dated by Fersht to 1855-70.
