These pieces are a faithful representation of the original Isle of Lewis chess men and are expertly crafted in England by Berkeley Chess. The carvings are finely detailed and character has been infused into the pieces. We have chosen to pair these impeccable chess pieces with a deluxe Spanish-made wenge and maple board, produced by the prestigious manufacturer, Rechapados Ferrer. The result is a set that perfectly captures the spirit of the original Isle of Lewis pieces, but adds a luxurious look and feel.

The original Lewis Chessmen were carved mostly from walrus ivory with a few pieces carved from whale teeth. They were found in impeccable condition; only the colouring showed 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.

The world class craftsmen at Berkeley Chess have produced an authentic interpretation of the Isle of Lewis chessmen, which fully does justice to the original pieces.
