The Lewis chessmen need little introduction - they are probably the most recognisable sets of chessmen in the world today. Made famous after they were discovered hundreds of years after they were made in a buried chest off the coast of Lewis in Scotland. The originals are now priceless museum artifacts but you can poses your very own version with these fine example reproductions.
Each piece is formed from a crushed stone resin composite and features a felt bottom to protect the playing surface of your chess board. A unique and elegant chess set presented in beautiful gift packaging. A great value full tournament size Lewis chess set.
