    Hello all.
    I bought this set from an Oxfam shop when I worked in London in 1967.
    I was hoping someone out there could tell me something about it.
    Is it a recognised pattern?
    English, Continental or whatever.
    Possible age?
    The pieces are machined from wood (what type I don't know).
    I intend to pass it along to my grandson (as he is showing interest in playing chess) and would like to tell him a little of its history.
    Any information would be appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Tony
