An incredibly accurate reproduction of the original Isle of Lewis chessmen. These impressive British made chess pieces have been commissioned by the National Museum of Scotland. The chessmen have been moulded from high resolution laser scans of the original pieces found in the museum. These historical figurines have become legendary and are undoubtedly the most unique and original looking chessmen available today.
There is speculation that the pieces emerged from Norway but remained undiscovered for hundreds of years in the sandy beach of Uig bay.
These faithful reproductions are made from fine crushed stone composite and are supplied in an elegant blue presentation box, featuring the Museum branding in silver embossing. The perfect gift for all chess enthusiasts.
