This unique chess set features miniature replicas of the National Museums Scotland Lewis Chessmen and a beautiful playing board adorned with Celtic knots and symbols. 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.

They are one of the museums most popular gifts and features a faux ivory effect finish.

Box dimensions: 32cm x 24.5cm x 8cm

The miniature replica Chessmen have been created from 3D laser scans of pieces in the National Museums Scotland and British Museum collections. Both the playing pieces and board are finished in simulated cream or coloured ivory to accurately represent the walrus ivory originals. The beautiful chessboard also serves as a protective case, with a cut foam interior and black felt lining to keep each chess piece safe between games.

Dimensions: The chessboard has a diameter of 22cm and the tallest playing piece stands 4cm tall.
Materials: Both the chessboard and playing pieces are finely sculpted in poly-resin with protective felt.
