“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. Often it is even hard to tell the origin, so I'm not sure they are all German here.

The first set you see has been bought in Vienna and could be Austrian as well. Not sure of age, but could be 19th century or early 20th century?

  • Germany or Austria, "Régence alike"
  • 19th century?
  • Maple? K 9.7; p 4.5

The other 6 sets listed below could be French, from Sudetenland or Polish. But I have listed the sets here because of what I think is most likely. They all are, I think, 20th century and German. I have put a '?' when not sure. Maybe the 1st is French. The 4th set could be Czech or Sudetenland and may be much older (based on comparison with the Sudetenland set at Czechia (Other European) page). The set from Oberlausitz could be Polish, but that's only a few km away from Oberlausitz.  All 6 are cheap sets. No real value for the true collector, but just informative. Except 1st and 2nd are they rather small and not very suitable for normal play. Maybe they are intended as travel sets, but then I mis the boards. Could have been part of games compendium as well.
