English makers Lund

"Lund" type sets are called after chess sets made by father Thomas (at 56-57 Cornhill, London from 1804 until his death in 1843) and son William (at 24-25 Fleet Street, London from 1835 until his dead in 1872). We have seen signed sets of both. William took his father's running as well. His son Charles continued the business under the name of William Lund & Son.  This type was very popular and has been made by several manufacturers. This particular set is larger, more chunky and has more discs on the pieces as usual.
