Jaques Paulsen Chess Set Pieces, Circa 1852 For Sale

Jaques Paulsen Chess Set Pieces, Circa 1852

TheStaunton Chessmendesign came into official existence on March 1, 1849, when Nathaniel Cooke of 198 Strand, London, registered design number 58,607, “an ornamental design for a set of chess-men” under the British Ornamental Designs Act of 1842. Cook licensed the right to manufacture these chessmen to the firm ofJohn Jaques of London, noted wood and ivory turners founded in 1795 (and still in business).

The pieces offered in this sale are the JaquesPaulsen designand were manufactured between 1852 and 1854. The King height is 3-1/2" and the set is unweighted, as were all early Jaques Chessmen of this size and smaller.The Base of the King is stamped “Jaques London” and there are crown imprints on the summits of Both Kingside Rooks and the Ebony Kingside Knight. The replacement Boxwood Knight is not stamped. The chess set is in quite good condition for its age..It is housed in an unremarkable replacement box. I have tried to depict the damage below and in the attached images.

There are six Boxwood and one Ebony Pawns with chipped collars. Boxwood side has all 16 chessmen, although there is a replacement Boxwood Knight and, possibly, a replacement period Boxwood Bishop.The Ebony side is complete, although one Knight might be a period replacement. The Boxwood Rooks have some staining, probably due to color bleeding from a wet Baize base pad.This is a very rare survivor set from among the earliest Staunton chessmen produced. Complete Jaques Paulsen sets are quite rare and very collectible.Please keep in mind that this set is over 160 years old. The finish is not perfect and the chessmen might have some bumps and very minor chips that can't possibly be described or photographed in detail. I tried to describe the significant flaws as I see them, and have shown the chessmen and flaws to the best of my ability in the 12 photographs allowed by . However, everyone has a different flaw threshold. If you are looking for a near perfect chess set, this fine, historically significant, antique is not for you.

As always, if you are not satisfied with your purchase, feel free to return the chessmen within 14 days, properly wrapped and in the condition received, and your purchase price will be refunded, less shipping costs. We ship FedEx 2nd Day Air, Insured. Costs are based on your location.
