Bric-á Brac - odd chessic objects
There is no end to the application of chess symbols - knights, kings, rooks, queens - to sundry everyday objects, and as decorative pieces. Wallpaper, gentlemens ties, underpants, teapots, chair knobs, cane knobs - every collector will at one time amusedly or shamefacedly pick up these things - but in fact this could be a separate collectors field with rich pickings to harvest!

This looks like a gameboard - but with 12 x 12 squares, enough to play King Alfonso the X. game of Ajedrez Grande, or Tamerlans Royal version! These chess variants are not very frequent, though - the most likely explication is that this was a board used for paying land taxes in old England!
Porcelain group - no marks - with the eternal theme of chess as a matchmaking game - very popular in olden days. Most porcelaine manufactories produced one or several variations on this theme.
Instead of the boring cup trophies, a variation in handmade painted earthen ware from Portugal.
