Superb Isle of Lewis chess set in classic colours of ivory and maroon red. Expertly made from a crushed marble resin these pieces have a substantial quality feel. 

Originally crafted from walrus ivory and whales teeth the iconic Isle of Lewis chess pieces were discovered near the Uig coast on the Isle of Lewis in 1831. It is thought they originated in Norway circa AD 1150. The characters include wild-eyed berserkers, knights on horseback and a stately king and queen sitting at their thrones.

We recommend matching this set with a board with 50mm squares. If you choose one of our recommended boards you can add an engraved plaque to make a memorable personalised gift.

The King has a height of 3.5" (8.8 cm), diameter 1.65" (4.2 cm) and weight 145 gm (5 oz.).

*Chess board not included.

In the heart of rural Somerset in the South West of England, Berkeley Chess apply traditional production techniques to painstakingly create beautiful replicas of original sculptures. Each piece is cast in a silicon mould and then hand polished to bring out the exquisite detail and then finished with a protective felt base. The skilled craftsmen at Berkeley Chess have produced two variants of these pieces, Victorian and Traditional, capturing the original detail and character.
