An exquisite combination featuring our luxury 22 Inch Italian made Walnut chessboard paired beautifully with our Isle of Lewis Ivory and Teak chessmen.
The Isle of lewis chessmen is a group of 78 12th century chess pieces. Traditionally carved in Walrus Ivory and discovered in 1831 on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland.
They make up of few complete, surviving medieval chess sets, although it is not clear if a set as originally made can be assembled from the pieces they are owned and exhibited by the British Museum in London which currently holds 82 of the original pieces.
It is believed that these chessmen where made in Norway by craftsmen in Trondheim in the 12th Century.
We are proud to present such a remarkable reproduction of the historic Isle Of Lewis Chessmen.
Made with stone resin construction and felted bases.
A truly magnificent set that would grace the presence of any home.
