NETTE ROBINSON

This Purling Art Chess Edition is designed by British artist Nette Robinson on the theme of the classic children’s story by Lewis Carroll ‘Alice in Wonderland’.

The original artwork for this Art Chess Edition series was specially created by Nette to be showcased at Chess Fest – a big chess festival held at Trafalgar Square.  The theme of the event was around Lewis Carroll and another of his well-loved stories, ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’, which was celebrating the 150th anniversary since its publication.

The board features the playing cards from the scenes with the Queen of Hearts falling down the rabbit hole.  Her design also incorporates references to the story with subtle silhouettes of things such as the key, the Rabbit’s pocket watch, a teapot from the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

A unique new Purling bracket enables this chess board to hang on the wall as a painting for display and storage and ‘float’ above the table when in play.

We are currently offering introductory pricing for the first 10 Nette Robinson Art Chess Editions, which will then rise to GBP £3,500 / US$5,000 for the remainder of the limited edition.

* Plus 6 proofs
