Isle of Lewis Chessmen

WWI002

The Isle of Lewis chessmen show the strong cultural and political connections between the kingdoms of the British Isles and Scandinavia in the Middle Ages. The pieces are well weighted with a ratio of crushed marble and resin, and then finished with a felt underlay. Each set is stained in Russet (a contemporary brown) and then further stained to add an antique effect. This results in an aged beautiful set that is eye catching and really stands out.
