Jon's main chess page

A Faïence pottery chess set, and board, Rouen, France, one side predominantly blue and white, the other side predominantly brown, green, and white, together with a Rouen faïence board (2), the king 10cm high, the pawn 6cm high, the board 58cm long.

This set was labeled in auction as "circa 1850" but this type of set was also manufactured in the 20th century, and I believe this set is 20th century.
