Miniature Isle of Lewis Chess Set - Irish Limestone

Smaller sized, handmade replica of the famous 'Isle of Lewis' chess set. The original artifacts were found buried in Northern Scotland where a Viking stronghold existed during the time they were believed to have been made.  In the early 1800's, a written description of these artifacts tells us that some of the pieces were originally a dark, vivid red, believed to have been stained by soaking the ivory tusk in ox blood.

Appox. Height of King: 2.2" (5.5cm).
Included Chess Board: 12" x 10.2" (30.5cm x 26cm)
