Isle of Lewis Chess Set - Limestone | Colors: Ivory and Blue

Handmade out of Irish limestone. Beautiful replicas of the original found artifacts.

The original chess sets were found buried on the shores of Northern Scotland where a Viking stronghold existed. The original pieces were made out of walrus tusk, most likely imported from Iceland or Greenland (also Viking settlements at that time). Based on the designs the original artifacts are believed to have been made in Norway. 

Today 82 of the original pieces are at the British Museum in London and 11 pieces are at the Scottish National Museum in Edinburgh.
