A nice example. Although Whittington pattern sets are often not signed (or otherwise lack a trade label), very similar (if not identical) sets were included for sale in the Jaques trade catalogue.

This set has pegged bone chessmen, so can be exported to the United States, although it will need a CITES licence as the chess squares contain rosewood. Please contact if you need further details.
