Old Bailey by Harry Everington, 1988

The "Old Bailey" chess set was made by Harry Everington in 1988. Only three of these sets were ever made. Tony Raynes bought the model set from Harry Everington directly and tracked two of these sets down in the US, which he subsequently acquired. I was fortunate to be able to buy one of those sets from Tony's estate.

The set represents court characters. The judge is the king in this set. The Lady Justice is the Queen. The pawns are the jurors. The knights are the lawyers.

The height of largest piece 18.5cm. Photos don't really do it justice.
