English Chess Sets

Many of the sets in my collection are from England, which was the locus of chess activity in the 1800's.  Quite a few of the English sets are sub-categorized -- some by maker, e.g. Calvert, Lund, Fisher, Jaques, etc. and some by style, such as St. George, Barleycorn, Staunton, etc.
