Antique Venetian Early 20th Century Ceramic Reynard the Fox Chess Set

About the Item

This incredibly animated and amusing Reynard the Fox design Antique Venetian Ceramic Chess Set is a fabulous conversation piece and a kiss of last century. This is a large Set with the tallest figure (The King) -14 cm, standart figure - 11 cm and smallest ( the Pawn) -9cm. The whole Set is 32 figures and a chess Board itself measures 46 x 46 cm and all together weight is 5 kg. Each figure is a character from Reynhard the Fox series of medieval German, Dutch, English and French fables. The Set is made out of Ceramic and hand painted in beautiful typical venetian red and blue colors. Each piece has been carved with lots of small fine details and definition. The special mention deserves the Chess Board which has been made in a Medieval style, featuring various images of animals and alike human creatures. It is a brilliant idea and matches the time period of the first fables versions which date from the second half of the 12th century. Underneath, the Board is covered with red velvet antique fabric.
