This large chess set combines the legendary Isle of Lewis chess pieces with a beautiful tiger ebony and maple chess board. The chessmen are a very authentic reproduction of the original Isle of Lewis museum artefacts.
These phenomenal British made chess pieces are brought to you by the National Museums of Scotland. They have been created from scientific laser scans of the original occupants of the museum. The Lewis figures have become legendary throughout the world due to their unclear history, steeped on Celtic and Nordic folklore.
The large chess board, made in Spain, is almost 22 inches (55 cm) in width. These chessmen require a large square size to accommodate their bases. The beautiful rich grain patterns of brown and black really complement the colour of the chessmen and add to the mythical look of the chess set.
The highest quality Isle of Lewis chess sets are found right here at the Regency Chess Company, England. They beg to be out on display and will be a talking point in any home.
