Jaques & Son 'The Staunton Chessmen'

An early 20th century J Jaques & Son Ltd of London Staunton chess set.

The chess set has its original box with a paper maker's label inside the lid that says 'The Staunton Chessmen' and has a signature 'H Staunton'.

The kings are signed 'Jaques London' along the lower base rim.
