Mexico  (Americas)

Mexico. These "Classic Pulpit" sets from Mexico are rather common. They are composed of several pieces connected with a wooden pin. Mostly they are in bone, but 100% wooden sets are also known. I do have difficulties to date these sets. I assume they are beginning 20th century, but I'm not sure about that. These sets are almost always in white and black, but I have seen red ones too. There exist also a variation with faces.
