British Chess Company Royal Presentation Set 1893-94

How do I know this? On page 308 of the British Chess Company(BCC) ‘Materials of War’ price list 1893-94, it was sold in club size 11cm king.

The chess set was made in silver and gilt and offered with a polished rosewood case to house the pieces.  It was purchased on ebay in January 2015. This may be a rather scarce set as having studied all the BCC sets sold at auction via the John Crumlier catalogue project (thanks John!), I’ve yet to see another such BCC set.
