A fine reproduction of a Jaques London chess set circa 1925. Beautifully hand carved and turned using the finest grade boxwood. A full sized tournament chess set ideal for match-play. Perfectly balanced pieces, ease of movement with sufficient heft.

The original Jaques set featured a king height of 3.5 inch, we have increased this to 4.00 inch whilst maintaining the design specifics.  The finishing to these mid range chess pieces is something you would expect to see in a higher priced set with a luxury tag!  As with all the Official Collection, expect nothing but quality at an affordable price point!  The Kings have the Official Staunton engraved hallmark.
