This incredible compact chess set boasts miniature renditions of the renowned Isle of Lewis chessmen, coupled with a durable stoneware board and a protective case. These iconic pieces are immediately recognizable and hold a prominent place in chess history. Originally discovered on the Isle of Lewis in 1831, the pieces have a fascinating backstory. Thought to have been crafted in Norway during the 12th century, they are now displayed in both the British Museum and the National Museum of Scotland. The latter has given official authorization for this compact version of the set to be produced. Unlike the originals, this set is made in England to exceptional standards, ensuring quality and value. Each piece is intricately designed and made of resin, while the board features stunning celtic designs and a removable lid that reveals a compartment for storage. This chess set is both elegant and functional, serving as a true work of art and an accurate recreation of the beloved originals.
