Good example of a mid/late 19th century Jaques three-and-a-half inch boxwood and ebony set. Will need a bit of work- several baizes are currently missing and will need to be replaced.

See Sir Alan Fersht, Jaques and British Chess Company Chess Sets, Kaissa Publications, 2010, page 9 for a similar green label (1862-1880s).
