A Note From Luke

Decent Jaques Staunton from the 1920s- 30s period, with the king coming in at just under 4 inches high. This classic pattern was first patented by the firm of Jaques (London) in 1849. The width of the King's base is 4.6cm.

As ever, please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
