Cantonese Unusual Staunton Chess Set

 
     
     
Jon's main chess page

A Staunton ivory set, 2H 19th century, that appears to be Cantonese by the knights and other features, but copied the Fleet Street designs. The knights are somewhat similar to Jaques "Leuchars" knights, which (in my opinion) were also Cantonese.

I have had some restoration done to this set.
