Berkeley Chess Decorative Chessmen - Alice - Cardinal

Heavily weighted and pure quality, these RED crushed marble and resin characters are very high qualty, with the detail highlighted in skillful staining. Alice's "Adventures in Wonderland" appeared in 1865 and "Through the Looking Glass" in 1872. Both books were superbly illustrated by John Tenniel and it is on his drawings that these chess figures are based.

The King is The White King. the Queen is obviously Alice. The Bishop is The Mad Hatter which may be the most alluring character in the set - our eyes are drawn to him. The Knight is The White Knight. The Rooka are Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, and the Pawn is the White Rabbit.

King Height 3.5" (9cm)Dia 1.3" (3.5cm) Weight 70g (2.5oz)
