“George Washington”  (England)

England. The "George Washington" sets are called that way, because George Washington did own a set that is similar. Typical characteristics are urn shapes in stems/finials, small mitres on Bishops, high arched Knights with ears pointing backwards and Rooks tapered in one line and with brickwork. The 1st set is identical to the set in Liddell's book. Note that the 3rd set has atypical Rooks. Maybe that set is of a bit later date like early 19th.

The set of George Washington (picture taken from the book of M. Liddell). The Washington pattern is named after this set.
