'Alice Through the Looking Glass' chess board

In the 19th century, illustrator Sir John Tenniel was more famous than the name with whom he was most closely associated – Lewis Carroll.

Now it seems Tenniel (1820-1914) may have considered a sideline in creating Alice merchandise.

In summer 2011, an Alice-themed chess board was bought by rare books dealer Jake Fior, who, upon closer inspection, discovered that it had been illustrated by Tenniel himself and was one-of-a-kind.
