A new power is rising and Middle Earth's only hope lies with a hobbit and the fellowship of the ring - and it all plays out through the Lord of the Rings Chess Pieces by Studio Anne Carlton. The orcs and goblins of the dark set may be intimidating, but the good guys feature Gimli and Aragorn to protect the ring bearer. Sauron and the ring-wraiths are threatening as well, but none shall pass as long as Gandalf the Grey has something to say about it! Each carefully molded piece is made from polyresin, a crushed stone composite with the feel and heft of rock but the durability of modern plastics. King pieces measure 4.5 inches tall. This is the chess piece collection to rule them all.
About Studio Anne Carlton
Established in Hull, Yorkshire, in 1969, Studio Anne Carlton now lists over 100 chess sets.They all bear the hallmarks of skill and tradition so typical of the world-famous sculptors and artists used by Studio Anne Carlton. Each Studio Anne Carlton chess set uses the timeless skills and craftsmanship originating from the company's founding. All pieces are hand-produced and finished in either a traditional brown and cream appearance or hand decorated with painstaking detail. The sculptures often take many months to complete, and every care is taken to ensure historical accuracy where appropriate. As the artists' masterpiece, the figures pass through various casting processes until suitable production molds can be made without losing any of the original detail.

SAC's wooden chess sets come primarily from India. SAC is a name that stands for the world's recognized leader for decorative theme chess sets and other classic traditional games.
