It comprises King and Queen, bishops as judges, rooks as burning buildings, prison cells, policemen as pawns and suffragettes painted with sashes. The original box states that the set was made in London by Disabled Soldiers and Sailors for The Incorporated Soldiers and Sailors Help Society, 122, Brompton Road, London, S.W. This organisation was founded in 1899, and Lord Roberts took a keen interest in the workshops set up after the South African war, in which many ex-servicemen were trained in the making of small articles. The chess set was sold in 'Toy and Athletic Dealers' Probably dates from late 1913-1914. Date: circa 1914

The terminology was Plique-a-jour (French for "letting in daylight"), a vitreous enamelling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonne, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel. Represented here in clothing form. Date: circa 1910s

The Irish Potato famine. Magnified view of the start of the

Part of a series of drawings appearing in the ILN in 1846 showing a magnified view of a slice of a small wedge of ripe potato as seen under the microscope. It resembles a honeycomb showing the cells of which contain the starch in the form of oval grains (a) and little seedlings of the Potato Botrytis infestins beginning to grow (b). The potato crop was the staple diet of the Irish rural population. When potato blight resulted in a ruined crop in 1846, over 1 million Irish citizens died, with a further 1-2 million emigrating.
