This video presents a discussion of the bone set styles commonly in use in Europe and North America prior to the introduction of the Staunton Style chess set by Jaques of London in 1849.

Here, Alan Dewey (CHESSSPY) shows and discusses true Barleycorn, Old English, Spike, and German bone sets.

A master turner and chess history researcher, Alan shows how the components of these sets were fashioned from the bones of livestock (cattle, sheep, horses).

He also touches on differentiating bone from ivory by the physical structure of the substances as well as by the general styling & detail level of the pieces.
