This is a very good quality and complete English handmade hardwood "Weighted" Club Chess Set game of 32 pieces, in the Staunton Fierce Knight pattern, all within a jointed wood box with sliding top and dating to the late 19th Century.


The chess pieces are made of turned, carved and polished hardwood, with very good detail in the Staunton "Fierce Knight" design. The bases of the pieces are felted and "weighted" with metal inserts. The maker could be Jaques of London. Lead Weighted Club sets like this one have large pieces and have a much nicer "feel" when playing.


Sizes: Kings: 8.5cm cm; Pawns: 4.3cm


The box is jointed, with a good fitting sliding top and a "Chess* label to the top. Overall a very good quality antique weighted Club Chess Set.
