Chess researchers differ as to whether Richard Whitty of Liverpool manufactured chess sets. My own opinion is that there is strong evidence that he did. This set has many features that match the standard Whitty pattern, especially the knights. If so, then it would be dated from the late 19th or early 20th century.
