    The Chess Set comes with a Individually Numbered Certificate of Authenticity and an original manufacturer's plaque indicating the production number, with an adhesive backing that would allow it to be affixed to the underside of a Chess box.

    History of the Chess Pieces

    This design, with the distinctive ribbed baluster bodies, the Maltese cross and feather finials surmounting the Kings and Queens, and the very distinctive canopied Rook, is an early 19 th century design produced in the workshop of Thomas Lund located at 57 Cornhill in London. Thomas had several occupations, but one of them was the manufacture of chess sets from the early 1800’s until his death in 1843. After the death of Thomas, William took over his father’s Cornhill premises. William Lund was initially located at 23-24 Fleet Street around 1835 and appeared in the London Trade Directories starting around 1845. William Lund continued to produce chess sets throughout the 1800s.  



    Lund Pattern chessmen are a subset of the English Playing sets produced in England during the 19 th century. The term English Playing Set is used to describe a range of chess sets in common use in the early 19 th Century that were designed specifically for serious play. English. Aside from Thomas and William Lund, English Playing Sets were produced by John Calvert, John Jaques, George Merrifield, Fischer, Hezekiah Dixon and Charles Hastilow, among others. The popularity of these designs gradually waned after the introduction of the Staunton Pattern chessmen in September of 1849.
