Description

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.

 

This Irish gift is ideal for:

  • St. Patrick’s Day
  • Anniversary (especially 9th = pottery)
  • Birthdays
  • Christmas
  • Father’s Day
  • Mother’s Day
  • New Home
  • Retirement
  • Wedding

    I received an email from Texas this afternoon stating that they received the Little Folk Chess Set and they were thrilled with such a delightful gift. The person who received the gift commented on how well it was packed and that it had arrived intact. Also gift was received within 8 days of purchase to the USA. So happy with my purchase from Totally Irish Gifts – an excellent choice.

    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.

    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.
