Jon's main chess page

Thomas Sherwin Jr. retailed at 527 Oxford street in London from 1859 to 1882. His father, Thomas Sherwin Sr., was a well-known chessmen/chessboard manufacturer at 67 Great Queen street.

This set is circa 1870, and may have been manufactured by Jaques, as the knight is identical to one pattern of knight found in the Jaques pattern book.
