Jaques of London made in India

    I'd hate to see that knight on the left coming for my king. I'd be running to the queenside!!

    I very slightly prefer the Staunton knight in the pictures (cf #10), but I clearly prefer the Jacques rook.

    But all in all, frankly, I don't care much. I analyse almost only on travel magnetic boards where pieces are painted circles, so I did not get used to the luxury pieces enough to be able to tell.

    i prefer staunton, not only because the knight looks more harmonious i prefer the colour a bit more as well.

    The cheap Jaques pieces are made in India maybe...The top jaques pieces are crafted in England though I think.


    I like the HOS set better than your new Jaques pieces.

    These are the nice jaques knights

    Some nice little sculptures in those old Jaques knights.

    lol just proves its possible to be intelligent enough to make lots of money but be as smart as a cucumber at the same time

    Just as an aside, I accounted for inflation for a 1912 ad for Jaques men--a pretty good deal in my eyes:

    4.4" club sized=$410

    4" small club=$352

    Ebony/boxwood, weighted and felted.

    I'd jump on that now!

    Thanks for all the comments. I appreciate the input.

    I'm returning the set to Jaques.
