“Selenus”  (Austria)

Austria. Unfortunately this Austrian "Selenus" set is not in a very good shape. It could have some replaced pieces as well. Nevertheless it is an interesting set with distinctive Kings, Queens and Bishops. The latter once had feathers, a feature you also see in "Biedermeier Coffeehouse" sets.
