    Recently I aquired another Austrian/Hungarian Coffee House styled set.  It was very dusty and dirty with some chips in the collars, but I did the best I could to clean it up and do minor repairs to the collars and felts.  The before photographs taken by the seller in Hungary.

    And after doing what I can.
    It was hard for me to let this one go again on ebay as it is such a great playing set.

    original and very nice set...congrats!Cool

    That's a Vietnamise set made from water buffalo horn and either bone or ivory. It's their version of a French Regence set. I've always liked them.

    you are welcome.

    i must admit i have to choose how to spending... as the great chess boards are expensive, i prefer looking for chess men or,if really good opportunity, for complete chess set.

    MySet that is a marvelous Regence chess set.  It looks quite small, but still maintains a great detail in the carving.  I think that must be a lucky find, even in France.

    Jack_Burton: Thank you.

    You are right, king is only 7 cm and pawns are 3cm, it is a bit small.

    But if you could see in real the colour they have...

    But i may be lucky because i think i find old same with same patina, but king and horses are 10 cm and pawns 6 cmm.Cool

    Another Austrian/Hungarian/Czech set has passed into my possession.  This one is small, the King is just under 3".  It's pretty old by my estimation.  Probably made in the first half of the 20th century.  Some pieces are in need of attention, but it is a finely carved set.

    Great looking set, Jack! It looks like the style was influenced by the King George style, if I'm not mistaken. Are the pieces weighted?
