An antique carved ivory club size chess set, which is a tremendous find. Lund style “club” sets are not common and at 4.5 inches this is a fine set for any collector or player to own. This set does not bear a Lund stamp and it would not be appropriate to suggest this set was retailed by any of the Lund family. Lund sets were produced by a number of retailers and turners and this set is extremely generous in its proportions. Dating from the mid 19th century it was almost certainly carved and retailed in London. Like Staunton, the retailer Lund attached the family name to the style and as with Staunton sets the style was copied sometimes badly but in this case with great skill.
