Prisoner-of-War Pulpit Set, late 18th or early 19th century

Jon's main chess page

An excellent example of one of the Pulpit sets (formerly known as "Spanish" Pulpit sets). These sets had been misattributed to Spain, but instead they were apparently manufactured by Napoleonic POWs. King size 10.2 cm.
