AN ENGLISH LUND TYPE IVORY CHESS SET, mid 19th century, one side stained red, the other side left natural, kings surmounted with Maltese crosses, queens with feather finials, bishops with open split mitres, knights as horses' heads, rooks as turrets, pawns with reeded ball finials, the king 10cm high, the pawn 4.5cm high.

This set resembles William Lund sets, but it appears to have been made by another (unknown) manufacturer.
