This miniature Isle of Lewis Chess set includes carved stone resin chess pieces and is established as one of the most popular gems of the British Museum. Found in unsual circumstances on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland in 1831, the 12th century Lewis Chessmen have bewitched historians around the world ever since. They were concealed in a stone chest deep in a sand dune on the island beach. Their unending appeal has secured their position as the most famous chess piece designs in the world.

The set includes a simple folding board and instructions, and is a most suitable gift for all keen history-loving chess players!
