It is said that the isle of lewis chessmen originated in Norway, but remained undiscovered for hundreds of years. It wasn’t until 1831 that they were accidentally 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 origins of the pieces. Despite the arguments and opinions, these pieces 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.
