Danish sets from around 1800 are delicate. The 1st set is a nice example of an early Danish set. Very often you see finials in opposite colours, but not in this set.
The 2nd set is about the same age or a little later. It has the typical opposite colours in the finials. Further it comes in an interesting cassette (or box) with a board at the inner side of the lid. The cassette is signed by "BJ? Eriksson Stockholm". Most likely one of the previous owners.
The 3rd set here was indicated as Danish, but it could easily have been made in Germany. I have seen similar Rooks in a Geislingen bust set. I'm not sure of the date either.
