A Note From Luke

Classic example of a weighted late 19th century chess set by the famous old London firm of Jaques, this one with the larger 4 inch king. There has been some light restoration to two pawns (completed to a professional standard) and the  hinges are sympathetic period replacements.

The perfect antique set for a serious chess player. Ready to go.
