Hi Emmi,

Yes, I've been aware of this item. If you look at the second photo you can just about make out the six periods:

Renaissance
Baroque
Regency
Louis XVI
Empire
Victorian

I believe there are other series that Chance made and I'll get information on this as and when it becomes available.

David, I checked the book and you don't say what size this series was made in?

David tells me via email that these were 5½" square which matches the set below nicely. This is the full boxed set complete with original cellophane wrappers on each plate and the listing of contents and makers details inside the lid.
