“Régence”  (Germany)

"Régence" sets of Germany are, just like the French, hard to date. However, the history of the German "Régence" sets does not go that far back as the French. I believe mid to late 19th century are the oldest. I do not have one. Sometimes it is even hard to tell what the origin is. The first set you see has been bought in Vienna and could be Austrian as well. The second could be French. But I have listed the sets here because of what I think is most likely.

The other 4 sets are, I think, 20th century and German. The set from Oberlausitz could be Polish, but that's only a few km away from Oberlausitz. The last set could be Czech or Sudetenland and much older (based on comparison with the Csech, Sudetenland set). All 4 are cheap and small sets. No real value for the true collector, but just informative. Because of the size are they not very suitable for normal play. Maybe they are intended as travel sets, but then I miss the boards.
