An elegant Selenus set from the last years of the 18th century. The Selenus Pattern was popular in Germany and Central Europe from the late 18th century to the mid 19th century and was especially popular during the Beidermeier period. Works especially well with the late 18th century German games box, as illustrated.

Both come from an important German chess collection.
