More About Alice In Wonderland
But what do we know of the author, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson? Who? Yes, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898) preferred to be known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll in his writings about Alice. The son of a country parson, the young Charles was educated at Rugby and Christ Church Oxford. Exceptionally gifted, the young Charles wrote poems and short stories from an early age and was to become an accomplished mathematician, logician and photographer.
His first and most successful commercial success was finally published in 1865 as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The sequel Through the Looking-Glass And What Alice Found There was to follow in 1871.
The professional illustrator was Sir John Tenniel (1820-1914). Tenniel was a regular cartoonist and caricaturist in Punch and eventually knighted in 1893. Tenniel's illustrations were to become some of the most famous literary illustrations ever produced. It was Tenniel's early coloured illustrations of Alice featured her in a blue dress with a white pinafore which were to become both so endearing and enduring.
Check out the individual product descriptions of our Alice In Wonderland chess pieces for those which have been specifically inspired by Tenniel's illustrations of Lewis Carroll's characters in his books about the adventures of Alice!

Your Assurance of Quality from CheckmateChessSets
At CheckmateChessSets, we are only prepared to offer to our customers theme chess sets of the highest quality and craftsmanship. Each of the Alice In Wonderland theme chess piece sets featured in this section of the website is derived from an original sculpture painstakingly crafted by a highly skilled craftsman. This original is then used to produce a master mould from which further moulds are created. It is into these moulds that a mixture of heavy ground marble combined with a resin mixture is poured.
Once the sculpture has set it is then removed from the mould and either hand painted by skilled artisans to produce the decorated theme chess pieces or simply stained to produce the plain theme chess pieces.
These beautiful Alice In Wonderland theme chess pieces which are yours to own are the result of this process, a process which creates a product of both natural durability and, crucially, also of the right medium to create the most intricate and exquisite detailed scuptures.
