Circa 1800 English Turned Antique Reproduction Chess Set Padauk Boxwood Pieces

This unique and eloquent antique reproduction chess set was produced in the 1840s in England and is commonly referred to as and English Playing set. The Kings and Queens feature well turned narrow barrel bodies mounted atop baluster shaped pedestals. Perhaps the most distinguishing feature is the round pyramid shaped base. The rook is represented as pedestal mounted reticulated towers surmounted with a tapered flagless staff. The Bishop, Knight and Pawn resemble styles seen on typical Barleycorn chess sets. The most noticeable feature of this chess set is the precise lathe work devoted to create and replicate each piece. The craftsmanship is extraordinary. Pieces are made from padauk and boxwood and are weighted to the extent possible given the size of the base. Whether your a collector or looking for a beautiful chess set to display in your home, playing chess with this chess set will add a feel of nostalgia and an extra level of enjoyment to the game!
