A Note From Luke
One of my favourite patterns. “Old English" pattern chess sets were popular in the 19th century and especially before the introduction of the Staunton pattern in 1849. This is an attractive example with pleasing figuring to the ebony.
Decent sets are becoming increasingly difficult to find.
