Excellent. A few very minor age scuffs.
Chip to rim of one rook, lean to king, tiny knick to bishop, otherwise excellent. Nice polished finish.
The usual age scuffs and minor scratches. Slight loss to veneer to edge. Interior good, slight age wear to green velvet.
A Note From Luke
The Staunton Pattern was designed in 1849 by Nathanial Cooke, and since then has become one of the most recognised chess patterns, beloved by international players for its simplicity, appropriate design and playability.
