Small playing  (England)

"small Playing" sets are extremely common. There was a time that you could find even more than 1 every week on Ebay. Nowadays the offer is much less, but still is it one of the most offered ones. I do have several of these sets, but some of them do have a few replacement pieces.

The list starts with a wooden set. That is extremely rare! I have asked several, most English, collectors/dealers and nobody did have seen it before. Most likely it is a one of a kind, maybe to practise or show some turning skills?

For these small playing sets it is even more difficult to know who the maker is. Some of the listed sets here have a makers name which was told to me by other collectors.
