A Dublin chess set late 19th century

A Dublin chess set late 19th century

This Dublin set was a most fortunate purchase from Dermot Rochford back in 2007, and it received excellent restoration by Alan Dewey who is a well known restorer to Chess collectors international members.

Ihttps://www.chessantiquesonline.com/ cannot recommend highly enough the Rochford’s excellent site , and they have suberb examples of highly sought after sets , plus on occasion items /sets for sale

 

with an 11 cms king this unweighted set ( delighted it was as only one could guess how much damage the pieces would have received if weighted), with a lovely patina, these lovely sets can be purchased if the collector is patient and be aware they don’t come cheap.
