A chessboard that is definitely in need of restoration, which I'll get around to soon, but the board has a manufacturer's label: Parker, 22 Warwick street. A check of the London Directories indicates that Thomas Parker set up shop at 22 Warwick circa 1821, and moved to 32 Warwick in the latter 1820's.
