Discovered in 1831 on the Isle of Lewis but dating back to the 12th Century, the Lewis Chessmen recall a time of feuding Viking Lords and violent invasions.

These authentic replicas have been handmade in the UK from 3D laser scans, using a simulated ivory finish to accurately represent the walrus ivory originals. Each set comes in an elegant presentation box.

Dimensions: This set is slightly smaller than the National Museums of Scotland’s standard Lewis Chess set. The largest chess piece – the King stands 65mm tall.

Materials: Each chess piece is sculpted in polystone resin with a protective black felt base.
