How much(!!)....

...would you pay for a set of chessmen?
I'm struggling with pricing - just for a change!! My chess pieces are almost ready to be listed, I just need to get some fabric to line the box
and weigh everything to work out the postage, but I've been doing some searches to try and find out what people sell handmade chess pieces at and you're looking at anything from a tenner up to 5 grand (yes really!!!)

Now obviously I'm not going to charge quite that much for mine, but, not including all the hours spent searching the internet for a box for them (!), or all the hours spent travelling to and from the pottery studio, there are probably around 9 -10 hours work in them. Now, supposing I were to pay myself the national minimum wage for them, that would make them over £50...

Is anyone going to be prepared to pay anything anywhere near that for these?
