Like new set. Displayed for a brief time, never used. Stored, wrapped in tissue paper. I originally purchased this set in New York City.

In mint condition free of chips, cracks or stains, crazing or hairlines. This item resided in and is sold from a smoke-free and pet-free environment. You will be proud to own this chess set as a collector and for the game pieces.

This will be one of the most famous and popular sets in your collection. The pieces are based on the characters in the Lewis Carroll's famous Alice stories. John Tenniel, the famous Victorian artist and cartoonist, illustrated the "Alice in Wonderland" and "Alice through the Looking Glass" books and the Chess Set designers have based the pieces on his original illustrations. This set is subtly hand painted in enamels to create a totally new look to this popular set.

Queen (Alice) actual height 3.46"
King actual height 3.33"
Rook actual height 2.85", base diameter 1.42" requires at least 1 3/4" board square size.
Bases are protected by red felt.

A set depicting characters from the story: The King yells "Off with her head;" kings are represented as in the story. The queens are represented by Alice. The bishops by the Mad Hatter; Knight is the White Knight of the story riding a bowing steed. The rooks are represented by Tweedle Dee (and Dum) standing on the battlements; the pawns is the bewildered White Rabbit. The Alice In Wonderland Chess Set is made & hand-painted in England.

Six memorable characters from Lewis Carroll's masterful story are featured in this set.

As best as I can determine these are made by Studio Anne Carlton (SAC). This chess set is indeed a piece of art and for that reason is perhaps the most collected of all fine chess sets. Located in Hull, England, their skilled craftsmen and artists turn out these chess sets based on historical events, mythology, and famous tales handed down from centuries past. These chess pieces are cast from ground stone and then are beautiful finished and hand painted. These special chess sets from SAC will be treasured for a lifetime.

Manufactured in cold-cast marble and hand-painted in enamels to two color schemes that differentiates the sides

Studio Anne Carlton chess pieces are highly sought after in the collectable markets. The fact that these highly prized pieces are completely hand made makes volume production out of the question.

Highly collectible. I just learned that the design studio that makes this item has now DISCONTINUED this gorgeous set.

Pieces imported from England.

I am the original owner.

This item resided in and is sold from a smoke-free and pet-free environment.

Great gift.
