The inventor of the now de-facto standard Staunton design of Chess pieces in 1847, Jaques of London, continued to enhance the design and the set produced during the 1890's set the standard for chess sets ever since.
The 1890's production was widely used in Chess competitions at the time and the modern Jaques equivalent continues to be used in the majority of todays tournaments. Truly, this is a historic pattern.
Jaques commemorate that fact by producing a high quality replica of this groundbreaking set in 2 sizes. A limited edition of 500 sets of each size have been produced.
Hand made using the original 1890 Jaques pattern, this set is even more finely detailed than the current standard Tournament set. The Ebony and Boxwood pieces are supplied in a superb baize-lined, polished mahogany cabinet with lock, each fitted with numbered signed original Staunton certificate of authenticity. A wonderful set for connoisseurs the world over.
Both sets come in a superb baize-lined polished mahogany cabinet with lock, as shown.
Boards must be purchased separately.
