British Tycoon's Chess Sets with Huddersfield Chess Club to be Auctioned
After Kagan’s death in 1988 the sets mouldered in storage before his widow Lady Kagan, who lived in Bradley, decided in 2008 to donate them to Huddersfield Chess Club. At the time she said: “I thought Joseph would have wanted them to be appreciated.”
The collection includes Russian sets, Indian, Spanish and military ones, a fabulously ornate Alice In Wonderland affair, as well as a gloriously non-PC monkey one. Read further at the Examiner.
