Although chess originates in the East, perhaps the most well-known historical chess set is the Scandinavian Isle Of Lewis Chessmen that were discovered in Scotland in the 19th century. However there are many other medieval or similarly early chess pieces in museums the world over.
The craftsmen at Berkeley Chess have commemorated 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 unique pewter and copper metallic colouring, and are sure to look fabulous anywhere in the home!
