This is a very good and complete handmade, hardwood chess set game of 32 pieces in a handmade pine box with a sliding lid, which we date to the turn of the 19th Century, Circa 1900.

The chess set is complete with 32 handmade and turned hardwood pieces, ( probably made of boxwood) all in the Regency shape or French Regence style. This Regence style are quite distinctive with the taller pieces and distinctive knights when compared to other designs and have a good "feel" when playing with. The box is handmade of pine with a sliding lid of good colour. 

Kings are 96mm high        (about 3~7/8 inches)
Knights are 90mm high
Pawns are 48 mm high (about 1~11/16 inches)

Note: Two of the white pawns are smaller replacements but of the same style. Please see images

Overall a very good handmade antique chess set.
