Calvert Chess Sets
John Calvert was one of the top chess set makers in England from 1791 until his death in 1822, after which his widow Dorothy took over the Calvert business until her death in 1840.
Many of the Calvert sets in the collection have the "Calvert 189 Fleet Stt" stamp. Some are unstamped but clearly attributable to Calvert. Other sets are of the design known as Calvert, but cannot be directly attributed to his workshop.
