That silly ol' Winnie the Pooh and all your favorite animals of the 100-Acre Wood are ready to play in the Winnie the Pooh Chess Set by Studio Anne Carlton. Play as Owl, hop from square to square as Kanga, bounce around as Tigger, or take timid strides forward as Pooh's best friend Piglet. All of these light and dark pieces are made from crushed stone composite polyresin that has the texture and weight of stone and the durability of plastic. An instruction booklet and adorably illustrated board are also included. King Winnie the Pooh measures 3.5 inches high ... guess he'll never reach that honey.
About Studio Anne Carlton
Established in Hull, Yorkshire, in 1969, Studio Anne Carlton now lists over 100 chess sets.They all bear the hallmarks of skill and tradition so typical of the world-famous sculptors and artists used by Studio Anne Carlton. Each Studio Anne Carlton chess set uses the timeless skills and craftsmanship originating from the company's founding. All pieces are hand-produced and finished in either a traditional brown and cream appearance or hand decorated with painstaking detail. The sculptures often take many months to complete, and every care is taken to ensure historical accuracy where appropriate. As the artists' masterpiece, the figures pass through various casting processes until suitable production molds can be made without losing any of the original detail.

SAC's wooden chess sets come primarily from India. SAC is a name that stands for the world's recognized leader for decorative theme chess sets and other classic traditional games.
