A few moth holes to the red baizes. Very minor chafing to edges of bishop. Otherwise ‘Excellent’.
Good. The usual minor scuffs.
A Note From Luke
It’s been suggested that this Staunton set is by the Victorian Liverpool chess manufacturer, Richard Whitty. Certainly, the red baizes are of the same colour. Otherwise, it’s a decent player’s antique set, with a good weight.
