Product Description

This superb chess set combines the legendary Isle of Lewis chessmen with our European walnut chess board. The chessmen are a precise reproduction of the original Isle of Lewis chessmen, made in Great Britain and brought to you by the National Museum, Scotland. They have been produced from laser scans of the original pieces that are stored and cared for by the museum. The Lewis chess pieces have become an iconic legend and remain one of the most famous and original designs of chess piece.

It is said that the chessmen originated from Norway but certainly remained undiscovered for hundreds of years. It wasn’t until 1831 that they were found near the sea on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. Some have argued that the figures were actually intended for a different game and plenty of discussion rages on the intended purpose of the pieces. Despite the arguments and opinions they are now firmly accepted as being chessmen in the conventional sense. The original pieces remain in the United Kingdom and are on display for all to see. These precise reproductions give you a chance to own a piece of history and enjoy a game of chess in the presence of their majesty and splendor.

A large, top quality chess set that you will want to proudly display.
