The design of this set is known in the modern codex as the “Pre-Hartson” . The practice of adding historic chess champions names to styles of Jaques chessmen is a modern practice which Jaques never used historically , although it is a great system to easily help identify specific Jaques Staunton Chessmen.
These are genuine antiques! Great to play and a good investment.
