Released in 2017, these pieces are skillfully crafted in England by Berkeley Chess and are a beautiful interpretation of the famous Isle of Lewis chessmen. Paired with a 21.7 inch deluxe black Anegre and maple board, this is an eye catching and highly detailed chess set. The carvings are finely detailed and character has been infused into the pieces.

The original Lewis Chessmen were carved mostly from walrus ivory with a few pieces carved from whale teeth. The pieces were discovered in impeccable condition with only the colouring showing significant wear. Even though it has eroded over time, some of the pieces have red staining, which gives a good indication that the game of chess in medieval times was played with red and white pieces rather than the black and white of modern chess.

This authentic interpretation of the Isle of Lewis chessmen has been produced by the expert craftsmen at Berkeley Chess and fully does justice to the original pieces.
