Really wonderful finds, Amicalement. Contemporary local sources for the appearance of Mysore soldiers are rare. This is a treasure trove for any figure designer or gamer for 18 century India!

I've seen some of these items, but not all of them as shown together here.

There are contemporary accounts that mention the heraldic / decorative items carried by some of the model elephant crews.

The commentary believes they are not chess pieces; however there are traditional Indian board-games that used elephants, camels, horsemen and infantry. I have no idea if such games survived into the dates of manufacture of these items or indeed if that's what these models are.
