The "St Louis" chess comes from the Crown collection, but the tradition attributing it to Louis IX of France is certainly mistaken. This set, made of rock crystal and smoked quartz, was in fact created in the late fifteenth century in Germany (the board) and France (the pieces). Late 15th century & additions in the 17th century.

Box for Board Games, 1440-1470, German or French; Board games, such as chess, checkers, and backgammon, were increasingly popular in Europe during the later Middle Ages, after it had been brought back by crusading knights from the Near East. Portable chess boxes with scenes of hunting, dancing, and courtship were mass-produced in inexpensive materials to contain the game pieces. The playing board is set into the box's underside.
