Experience the captivating allure of the ‘Isle of Lewis Chess Set’—a testament to the artistry of fine solid Walnut, seamlessly integrated with intricate wood inlays by Turkish artisans, infused with the echoes of Moorish design. Every detail, from the delicate wood working cuts to the precise scores and shapes, is meticulously crafted by skilled hands. This Isle of Lewis chess set is more than a chess board; it’s a perfect memento, an affectionate gift, or a stunning addition to any collection.

Behold the renowned ‘Isle of Lewis II’ chess pieces, beautifully showcasing a fusion of brown and ivory tones. These pieces are masterfully crafted from Stone crushed Poly Resin, a remarkably durable stone-based compound, before being gracefully stained in Russet Brown. Berkeley Chess, a prestigious British chess manufacturer situated in Somerset, England, has meticulously crafted these remarkable pieces. Known as one of the premier brands in the chess market, Berkeley Chess has revived the legacy of the original Isle of Lewis chess men—an iconic 19th-century discovery composed of walrus ivory and whales’ teeth from Uig on the Isle of Lewis. This Isle of Lewis chess set serves as a bridge between the cultural and political bonds that linked the British Isles and Scandinavia in ages past. With profound artistry, Berkeley Chess has expertly recreated this historic masterpiece for you to cherish and enjoy.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

We are a family business that focus strictly around customer service and ensuring our customers have a fantastic all round experience. We are also the largest store selling both Chess and Backgammon sets of great variations.

A common question that confuses many, infact there is no official provider of staunton chess pieces. These chess pieces are named after a gentleman, Howard Staunton who put forward a design of chess pieces made with precision and weight to prevent them toppling over. Staunton chess pieces are all manufactured by skilled craftsmen in Amritsar, India.

This is the official Chessgammon store, we are also present on eBay, Amazon and ETSY. However purchasing from the incorrect listing will mean you may be purchasing from a 3rd party dropshipper. This makes it incredibly difficult for you to arrange replacements/ complain about any potential damages.
