I bought my friend a brilliant chess set last year, glass top raised by four tree stumps, a landscape underneath, and the pieces were all fairies. Lovely! Unfortunately I don't have a picture, and can't seem to find it anywhere...

This is such a coincidence, I stumbled on this '' set the other day and started on a 'chess board' inspiration spree :)
