A Very rare 1960s Royal Doulton cut lead crystal chess set. One side in cobalt blue and the opposing side in clear glass, all with ribbed baluster stems and cog cut circular bases, the kings and queens with crenellated hollow crowns, the bishops as mitres, the knights as horses' heads and the rooks as castellated towers. Signed'Royal Doulton' to the bases. Handful of sets ever produced as the cost was prohibitive.
Condition is very good, I have found one small chip to one of the rooks which I have photographed in the last picture. This is pretty much hidden within the cutting pattern.A very impressive and very rare chess set! The item "1960s Royal Doulton Cut Lead Crystal Chess Set" is in sale since Monday, October 7, 2019.
