Chess Pieces: Heavy weighted in ground stone and polyresin
The Isle of Lewis chessmen - probably the most famous chess pieces in the world! These Lewis Chessmen are replicas of the originals which were discovered on the Isle of Lewis off the West Coast of Scotland and which are now housed safely and securely in the British Museum in London and in Edinburgh. The design of this replica Isle of Lewis chess set closely follows that of the original Lewis chessmen pieces. Click here to view product & close-up images
At CheckmateChessSets, we are only prepared to offer to our customers theme chess board pieces of the highest quality and craftsmanship. Each of the medieval theme chess piece sets featured in this section of the website is derived from an original sculpture painstakingly crafted by a highly skilled craftsman. This original is then used to produce a master mould from which further moulds are created. It is into these moulds that a mixture of heavy ground or crushed stone which takes the form of a fine white powder (in the case of Studio Anne Carlton) or ground marble (in the case of Mascott) combined with a resin mixture is poured.
Once the sculpture has set it is then removed from the mould and either hand painted by skilled artisans to produce the decorated theme chess pieces or simply stained to produce the plain theme chess pieces.
These beautiful theme chess pieces which are yours to own are the result of this process, a process which creates a product of both natural durability and, crucially, also of the right medium to create the most intricate and exquisite detailed scuptures.
But we don''t want you just to take our word for it - thanks to our unique collection of high resolution close-up images you can see for yourself...right now!
