The Oldest Chess Set in the Western World

The Isle Of Lewis Chess Set has legendary status and is probably the second most recognisable set of iconic chess pieces after Staunton. They gained their name from the isle of Lewis in Scotland. On a fateful day in 1831 they were discovered buried in a chest when a sand bank collapsed. It is thought that the chessmen were carved from Walrus Ivory and were actually made in Norway hundreds of years before they were re discovered.

Due to the proportions of the Lewis chessmen it's often the case that they sets are very large when combined with a board. For those with limited space these mini versions are ideal. We also sell them combined with a chess board for the completed look.
