Staunton Pattern Wooden Set by Richard Whitty of Liverpool, with Stamped Board, late 19th or early 20th century

Jon's main chess page
Richard Whitty was an important manufacturer (yes, doubters, in my opinion the evidence is strong that he was a manufacturer!) of chess sets in the 1890's and early 1900's. This set is a classic Whitty, complete with stamped board-box.
