Inspired by the various carved chess pieces of the medieval era that have been rediscovered over the years, these finely detailed resin chessmen will make a wonderful gift for any history or chess enthusiast.

Although chess originates in the East, perhaps the most well-known historical chess set is the Scandinavian Isle Of Lewis Chessmen. These whalebone pieces originated in medieval Norway and were discovered in Scotland in the 19th century. However there are many other medieval or similarly early chess pieces in museums all around the world.

The master sculptors at Berkeley Chess have commemorated some of the lesser-known medieval chess pieces with these stunning resin chessmen, which feature designs based on a 14th century German set.

These exquisite carved resin pieces are finished with a stunning deep red and cream coloured finish, and are sure to look fabulous displayed in any home.
