Full Gift Description

This Little Folk Chess Set has such unique and fun playing pieces. The Toadstool is the Castle with a fáilte (welcome) sign over the door leading to Tír na  nOg (Land of the Young). Seán the Knight has shamrock and a shillelagh to keep away the people who want them to grow up. Fergal the Bishop has a book of spells and fairy stories. Brian the King has a bag of gold for the winner of the game. Maeve the Queen has a crown of shamrocks and magical charmed harp. Paddy the pawn sits on shamrock waiting for the game to begin and smokes his pipe.

Chess board included, measures 37 x 37cm. Figures range 3cm-6.5cm.

This Little Folk Chess Set is made from cold cast porcelain, i.e. a porcelain powder that is bonded so that they are both decorative and functional, which means they don’t break easily. O’Gowna was taught this process over twenty years ago by Royal Doulton master craftsmen.

As this craft is handmade there may be visual variations, however, the same high quality of craftsmanship will apply to all sets.

    Fast shipping! Great packaging to make sure everything came over intact. The detail on the pieces are incredible! I bought this for my husband for Christmas, and haven’t given it to him yet to see his reaction, but I love it!

    What amazing service from the very beginning. I used the chat service to ask a question and I was answered very promptly. Such a friendly, helpful service, keeping me updated with my order throughout. The product itself is beautiful. Crafted to a very high standard with so much detail. The packaging is also very professional, I can’t wait to give it as a 70th birthday gift. Thank you for such a beautiful product.

    An wonderful gift for an Irish chess coach. The pawns are perfect representations of everyone’s thoughts about Little People. The packaging was awesome! I think an egg would have made it safely across the Atlantic. Thank you Totally Irish Gifts.

    Beautiful chess set of the Little People, fast delivery, and excellent service and support from Totally Irish Gifts. I found this on their website while looking for something else, and I’m very happy I did. Pieces are small works of art and have a great feel when playing. The board adds nicely to the theme. Very happy with purchase, store, and staff.

So happy with my purchase from Totally Irish Gifts – an excellent choice.
