Odd Sets & Singletons
This encompasses sets that do not fit into the established categories - or which I cannot place.
Solidly turned chess set with most unusual forms - kings with a peg sticking out of the crown, the four principal pieces with bell-like bodies, the knights reminiscent of Eastern dragon heads, the rooks of pagodas - might we suspect Taiwan as origin? Some similarities to those assembly style toy sets produced so profusely in the East for export....
From a lost country
Red & White homemade
Very odd forms - kings 96 mm, no felt, rough wood. Red paint is smooth, white patchy. One-off homemade from the US of A?
