“Régence”  (Austria)

Austria. This "Régence" set has been made in an unusual way. For instance, the Bishop has 8 parts, with stem parts having both inner and outer threads and the ball in two parts. There is a picture of the Bishop dismantled, however you see only 7 parts because I could not unscrew the 2 parts of the base. Origin is unsure. I bought the set in Vienna, but other say the set has been made by Uhlig.
