The hand decorated version of the Peter Rabbit Chess Set, beautifully created. The story of Peter Rabbit first appeard in a picture letter Beatrix Potter wrote to Noel Moore, the young son of her former governess, in 1893. The characters are portrayed in the individual pieces of the chess set. Encouraged by her success in having some greetings cards published, Beatrix remembered the letter seven years later and expanded in into a little picture book with black and white illustrations. After being rejected several times, it was finally published by Frederick Warne in 1902. The tale of Peter Rabbit’s pacy story, engaging hero and happy ending have made it a children’s classic whose appeal is timeless. The chess set comes in a presentation case and with it’s own chess board.
