A nice chunky unweighted playing set in boxwood and ebony with a 4 inch king. Based upon the illustration from the June, July & August editions of the Chess Players’ Chronicle dated 1881, this firm advertised in the Chronicle at this time. Based upon the illustrated drawing, my pieces don’t look too different from the illustration therefore I am inclined to believe this just might be a Hennig Bros set!
