The Isle of Lewis Russet and Walnut Chess Set

The Isle of Lewis Russet and Walnut Chess Set


To fully do justice to these stunning Isle of Lewis chessmen, produced in the UK by the skilled craftsmen at Berkeley Chess, we've paired them with an exceptional 19.7 inch walnut and maple veneered board.

The grain of the walnut is magnificent and the attention to detail is immediately apparent in the clean and extremely well finished lines of the board.

The skilled craftsmen at Berkeley Chess have produced an authentic and striking interpretation of the Isle of Lewis chessmen, which fully does justice to the original pieces.
