Egyptian Mouse Chess Set, by Wee Forest Folk

Sculpted entirely by William Petersen, a second-generation artist of the Wee Forest Folk family comes this chess set truly unlike any other. The Egyptian mouse chess set, which consists of both a red and blue team, features a King mouse and Queen mouse seated atop golden thrones, two black cat Bishops, two royal body-guards as Knights, two Egyptian pillars as Rooks, and eight spear men as Pawns. Accompanying the chess set is an entirely hand-carved wooden chess board which is adorned by the artist with elaborate mice-themed hieroglyphs. The entire set comes in its own wooden presentation box. 12" x 12".

Wee Forest Folk


Annette Petersen crafted her first little mouse nearly four decades ago, and today is joined in the wee mouse world by Annette, Willy and Donna, the next generation of Petersens. They describe their creative process this way. “We make the mold, cast it, and a little mouse begins to emerge. Meticulous hand-painting and an enormous amount of patience and time brings each sculpture to life”. All of the Wee Forest Folks are hand-crafted entirely in the small town of Carlisle in eastern Massachusetts.
