A Note From Luke
Classic ivory Staunton chess set by the famous firm of Jaques, London. We can date this set by the style of the knight's head, and the Jaques stamp on both the Kings.
The set comes with a good quality mahogany and brass inlaid antique box from teh same period. Lovely set and ready to go. Recommended.
