A really nice example of an antique Jaques set in an original, untampered condition. The white king is stamped JAQUES LONDON on the underside of the base. The condition of the chess set is excellent, with some very slight rubbing to the red side and some very minor age cracks in places. The box is good: the lid is still hinged to the box, and the original silken supports are intact. There is a chip to the bottom right hand side front of the box, and the red lining paper on the underside of the box is scuffed and stained with losses around the edges.
