This exquisite and refined collection of high-quality stone resin chess pieces is artfully inspired by the captivating and storied history of Scotland. A land renowned for its remarkable evolution and transformation, Scotland has undergone countless momentous changes throughout the ages. From the famous Hadrian's Wall, constructed by the Romans in an effort to protect their colony of Britannia from the fierce Caledonian tribes, to the influx of Anglo-Saxon English after the Norman invasion of 1066, Scotland has adopted elements of English culture and society. With the implementation of a feudal system, Scotland began to flourish and prosper. In 1328, King Edward III finally acknowledged Scotland's independence, and later, the marriage of James IV to the daughter of Henry VII fostered the Stuart reign of Scottish sovereignty in England. Finally, in 1707, the long-standing rivalry between the two nations came to an end with the unification of the kingdom of Great Britain.

The rich history of Scotland is brought to life through the intricate detailing of these pieces, each one commemorating a famous figure or symbol. Among them are the revered King Robert The Bruce, the legendary Mary Queen Of Scots, and the influential John Knox. Sir William Wallace stands as the Knight, while the Scottish Tower House is represented as the Rook and the national flower, the Scottish Thistle, as the Pawn.
