French Polychrome Figural Ivory Set in Napoleonic Theme, 19th Century

Jon's main chess page

This is one of those rare Napoleon-themed polychrome figural ivory sets, with the Emperor Napoleon as both Kings. These sets are small and naively carved. Probably early to mid 19th century.

The set is displayed on a later 19th century French ivory and mother-of-pearl board.
