    I bought this set over 25 years ago, I think it is a Ceramic Drinkable Chess Set Designed by a Quebec architect William Boissé (The bottom of each piece has the name Boissé). I Googled his name an found a 1973 news article referring his name to a set he designed.

    news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1873&dat=19730101&id=K08fAAAAIBAJ&sjid=qtEEAAAAIBAJ&pg=3342,58556

    I would like to confirm that this is the set he designed.
