ANTIQUE RARE JAQUES IVORY CHESS SET IN A FITTED BOX
A rare Jaques ivory chess set, one side natural ivory the other stained cochineal red, in a fine Cuban or Spanish mahogany box with two original removable trays which are lined with a deep blue felt, with kings that are 4 inches high and are both stamped ‘Jaques, London’. We think the chess set dates from about 1900 – 1915 as inside the base of the box is a green trade label (only used for ivory sets after 1900) and the moniker is ‘J Jaques & Son Ltd’ (only used after 1900).
A great opportunity for any collector, chess player or as an iconic piece of English art and workmanship.
