Based on Lewis Carroll (pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) characters from ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ and ‘Through the Looking Glass’. these wonderful pieces have been lovingly created from stone crushed resin in this lovely cardinal red colour.

The stories were written to entertain and amuse the young children of The Dean of Christ Church where Carroll was a lecturer. The heroine, Alice, is based on the Dean’s eldest daughter, Alice Liddell. It was because her children were so entranced by his stories, that their mother persuaded Carroll have them published. You will recognise all the main characters from Carroll’s tales brought to life on a beautiful 19.7 inch lacquered blue erable chess board from Spain.
