Described by Keats (page 175) as one of the finest sets of this kind extant, this George III Canton chess set represents Chinese master craftsmanship of the highest quality, from the first quarter of the 19th Century this Class 1 chess set has been equalled but never bettered and the knights remain the finest horse carvings from China in this period that we have ever seen, and at 5 inches, the white king is a large size. The fine carving outshines all but a handful of similar Canton George III chess sets and sets of this quality rarely come to the market.
