  • Handmade chess board by professional french polisher. The board is made from satin wood.
    The complete chess set is a vintage Isle of Lewis chess set based upon the originals which date back to medieval times. This is the most popular interpretation and is an excellent choice of the lewis genre of chess set.


    The Lewis Chessmen were discovered in 1831, on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland by a local shepherd. The chessmen discovered within the chamber are probably the most famous in gaming history and are the oldest complete set of chessmen ever found. Made from walrus tusk, the Lewis Chessmen are believed to be of Icelandic origin and to date back to the twelfth century.

    This is a stunning unique chess set which would make for a very special gift for a chess lover and a fantastic table centre piece.
