REF1425 Fine over sized English paying set, box & board.
Rare giant playing set, one side in ebony other in boxwood. Pieces with traditional multi turned stems , knights as fine detailed horses heads, rooks as towers with ball and cone tops.
Boxwood pieces with a good toffee patina, pieces with an excellent original polished finish.

With vintage Englis large mahogany framed board.
A magnificent and rare example , the pieces with exacting proportions to one another. A set from a top maker of the period and most likely a special commision due to the grand size.
In one image I have placed a large Club size Jaques King with the pieces to give an idea of proportions and size.
