  1. Hello
    I have a unusual question to ask you. It looks like I have the same chess set – Napoleon and the French, battle of Waterloo. If possible could you please tell me what is the brand name of it and by whom is made, just little bit history.
    Kind Regards

    1. Hello Piotr,
      Thanks for commenting. I have had the Waterloo Chess Set for many years (maybe 20+). As you can see it is large, so actually only comes out of the box quite rarely as it takes up a lot of space. I really like it though. The cardboard box is unmarked, so I don’t have a brand or make detail I’m afraid. I bought it in a collectors type shop in Southampton – I think the shop was called Situls or something like that – long since gone. I am glad you have the same set, it’s a very nice chess set in my opinion. Kind regards, Kev Lamb, Chandler’s Ford Chess Club.
