Red Chess pieces

Are some sets made in red and white, or is Lewis Carrol's red Queen a figment of his imagination.
Any light you can throw on this would be much appreciated.
In the Gareth Williams book "Master Pieces"
-The Architecture of Chess, there are several Chess sets
pictures depicting black pieces as "red pieces".
The following picture shows a Chess set featuring red pieces:
