This exquisite chess set showcases tiny replicas of the renowned Isle of Lewis chessmen, accompanied by a stoneware board and case. Known for their iconic and historic status, the chessmen were discovered on the Isle of Lewis in 1831 after being buried in the sand for centuries. Some believe they originated in Norway in the 12th century, despite their misleading name. The debate over the true origins of the chessmen continues to stir, particularly over the location of their display. However, the National Museum Scotland has endorsed this charming version of the set, which is skillfully crafted in England and offers exceptional value. With its solid and elegant design, this chess set is a true work of art and remains a timeless classic. Each piece is carefully made from a crushed stone resin, resulting in a weighty and beautifully crafted set. This superb chess set continues to captivate and delight fans of the game.
