India ~ replicas  (Asia)

India ~ replicas. Some years ago you could buy these Indian replica sets for not too much money. Most of these sets are still available today, but prices have gone up tremendously. On the other hand are these sets very well made using good materials. Especially the wooden sets are made of first class wood. The bud rosewood is stunning! The classic patterns are all based on antique sets and not exactly Chinese copies. The "Old English" set is based on several examples, including my own "Old English" set. See 18th century (England) page.

I have to say that  the "Pepys" set is actually more a decorative set and less meant for play.
