Queen coronet with tiny chip to one spike. Neat restoration to crown. Otherwise excellent. Nice shiny 'toffee' patination, green baizes excellent.
Tiny chip to bottom of two pawns, very minor hairline crack to rook, knight and pawn (well restored). Otherwise excellent.
Scuffs, minor dents and wear to box as expected with age. Further inscription and wear to brass inlay. Rubbing and some wear to green label, plus inscription in ink.
A Note From Luke
Increasingly scarce fine 4.4 inch Jaques Staunton Boxwood & Ebony chess set from circa 1855-60. In the original Jaques mahogany box with green label. Interesting owner’s heraldic crest and Victorian retailer’s stamp an added attraction.
