This is a remarkable Jaques Staunton set, with 4 inch kings, triple weighted and in its original box with green Jaques label. This was produced at a time when the use of ebony was banned and both white and black pieces were made of box wood and the black pieces where stained such. This is not in the Jaques tradition and we have only come across one other example of the pieces being lacquered in red and white/cream to mirror the more expensive ivory sets. The quality of the lacquering is very high and the pieces are triple weighted. A pleasure to play with. The Jaques stamp can be seen through the lacquer as can the crowns on kings knights and rooks. A rare thing!
