  • Full-size replica of the Lewis Chessmen Knight from the National Museums Scotland collection in new mock ivory finish, Made by hand in the United Kingdom.
    3D laser scans were taken of some of the pieces in the collection to create these authentic poly-resin replicas exclusive to National Museums Scotland. This Knight wears a long heavy coat, split at the front and back to improve agility in battle. He carries a large shield and a thick lance and is mounted on a very small, stocky horse.

    The Lewis chessmen are one of the most popular objects on display in the National Museum of Scotland. The Viking cache of ninety-three figures, carved from walrus tusk and probably made in Scandinavia in the 12th century, were found some 700 years later in a the sand on Uig bay in 1831. The artistry varies from piece to piece but it's the facial expressions that divulge their true characteristics and quality. The collection included four distinct sets. Eleven figures are currently owned by National Museums Scotland and the remaining eighty-two are in the British Museum in London.

    NOTEThese are full size ornamental versions of the Lewis Pieces and are not suitable as replacements for the National Museums Isle of Lewis Chess Set
