Old Minton Chess Set – My Latest Purchase

A 19th century Minton Parian Chess Set in white an lapis lazuli blue, modelled by John Bell (1812-1895) The pieces are cherubs . This chess set design was originally exhibited at the Great Exhibition of 1851. The date markings show the 1851 as the manufacturing date.

I recently purchased this at auction on the 10th September 2011 and I am looking  to complete a similar set in green.
