Whitty Club-size Ivory Set, circa 1900

 
     
     
Jon's main chess page
A very large club-size ivory set, with all the classic hallmarks of manufacture by Richard Whitty of Liverpool. There is still discussion and debate about the so-called Whitty sets, but my own opinion is that Richard Whitty did manufacture these sets in his workshop on Tithebarn Street. King size 11.8 cm.
