REF1906 St George chessmen by Jaques London
Large weighted St George pattern chessmen , on side ebony other side boxwood. White king stamped “JAQUES LONDON” . Pieces with loaded bases and green baize. Set retains original french polished finish.
I have dated this set in a twenty year period as the original baize material green shade matches exactly with Jaques Staunton chessmen of that period. The knights carved style is similar to Jaques sets of the 1870-1880 period see page 33 fig 44 Jaques & Brit chess co. by Alan Fersht. The rooks are smooth faced with six crenellations & manes of knights typical Jaques details.
Chessmen come in same period pine slide lid box.
