Spain  (Other European)

Spain. The 1st Spanish travel set in this list is one of my favourites. I love the simple form of the pieces and think it is a real beauty. The board is less impressive and has the clasp replaced, but does it's job well.

  • Spain
  • ca. 1900
  • Boxwood K 5.0; p 2.6
  • Box/board 17.9×8.9×3.4 (closed)

Spain. The 2nd travel set does have neat pieces in the "Staunton" style. The lacquer has been unaffected, so I think it was never played with. I bought both travel sets in the same antique shop in Barcelona.

  • Spain, "Staunton"
  • Mid 20th century
  • Boxwood K 3.1; p 1.8
  • Box/board 15.2×7.1×2.5 (closed)

Spain. The typical Spanish design of the playing set does have some Régence and Staunton influences, but stands completely on its own. I bought the set on a flew market in Barcelona for little money. Probably the set has never been used, considering the condition.

  • Boxwood K 5.9; p 3.6
  • Box 18.3×10.4×6.8

Spain. This tiny chess set was a gift of a friend, who had bought it in Spain long ago. Most likely this set is a doll house set. Too small to play with. It is the smallest in my collection.
