1851 Antiqued & Ebony Chessmen




A stunning set of chess pieces by the Official Staunton Chess Company. An incredible reproduction of an circa 1851 design first introduced onto the market by Jaques of London way back in the old romantic days of chess! An antiquing process has been applied to give an appearance of an aged old set full of patina.

King side stamping embellishments also feature on this remarkable chess set.
