Immaculate. Green baizes immaculate. Nice figuring to the boxwood grain. Minor scratches and scuffs to the wooden box.
A Note From Luke
Magnificent Staunton chess set with the king just under 4½ inches high (11cm ). The set is unsigned, but the knights are identical in style to Jaques. One possibility is that this set was made by an ex Jaques carver for F. H. Ayres. Lovely quality and immaculate condition.
