Russian Military Themed Porcelain Chessmen
A set cast Russian Military Themed Porcelain Chessmen; The King stands 3.5” tall with a 1.7” long base. The chess pieces feature yellow and black appointed Polychrome overglaze painting. Both armies sport dark brown felt base pads. The chessmen are a juvenile representation of a Russian army. The chess set features ships as rooks, a typical theme in Russian and earlier Soviet sets. The King is rather unusual. He appears to be leading a Russian Wolfhound. The Queen is sitting with two cats standing at her feet. The bishops have dogs at their sides.
