A reproduction of the special chess set style created by Jaques of London for London's preeminent chess center of the 19th century, the Grand Cigar Divan of Simpson's-on-the-Strand. Pre-dating the Staunton design, this elegant pattern shows the queen beginning to transform into a crowned piece. This reproduction shows the basic form of the original pieces, in a modern felted and weighted rosewood. AncientChess.com
