1849 Cooke Morphy 4.4" King Edition Distressed Antique & Natural Ebony
A magnificent reproduction of an early Cooke 1849 chess set.
Our artisans have applied a technique called " distress antiquing" a process which results in the chess pieces looking aged, worn and well used'! This set is best suited to the serious chess collector and connoisseur.
Along with the original 3.5," version we decided to recreate this beautiful set with a much larger 4.4 " King. The general consensus among chess collectors favoured this size.
