A Note From Luke

Splendid Jaques board of Tournament size. The chess squares are 6.7cm wide. It dates from the Pre-War period (the Jaques factory and office, based in Hatton Garden, London, was destroyed in the Blitz in 1941). The board is mounted with ‘silver-coloured metal’ plaques. For the British Chess Correspondance Association (BCCA) Trophy: County Junior Chess Corresponance Championship, with further shields for the English counties of Warwickshire (1952), Lancashire (1955) and Sussex (1953).
