Isle of Lewis Chess Set - Resin Playing Pieces

Slightly smaller, but highly detailed set with felt bottoms.

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 (both founded by Vikings). Based on the designs the original artifacts are believed to have been carved 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.
