One very minor chip to base rim of pawn. The green baize of one white pawn and a black bishop has some loss and wear. Otherwise, “Very Good” to “Excellent”.


A Note From Luke

Nicely made early 20th century Staunton pattern set of smaller size. The width of the king’s base is 2.7cm wide. The famous Staunton pattern was first registered in 1849 and is now recognised as a design classic.
