Lovely late 18th century Selenus set with Islamic crescent finials, as popular in Central Europe at that time. Original condition, yet hard to spot any faults with it. The red stain is nice and fresh. No chips. Tiny hairline crack on one of the white knights, otherwise it gets an “Excellent” rating. With the original stained pine box with a sliding lid. Nice set. Recommended.
