F H Ayres Staunton Vegetable ivory set

a purchase from Tim Millard at the Antique chessshop.com this 6 cms king vegetable Ivory set with its original Ayres box. These lovely sets are on occasion sold as Bakelite, which is incorrect. With the Ivory selling ban coming collecting these sets might be a good idea.The Ayres boxes were described as polished ones in their pricelist for 1892, which they also used for their Bone sets.
