Add a historical note to your chess collection with the Isle of Lewis Solid Resin Chess Pieces with Ebony/Maple Veneer Board Designed by Studio Anne Carlton. This high quality set has a detailed, distinctive medieval design, a recreation of the hand-carved pieces found throughout the 1800s on the Isle of Lewis. The well-known Lewis design is different from the traditional chess model most of us know, and in this version, UK designer Studio Anne Carlton has used artistic license along with historical references to make outstandingly detailed and beautiful pieces. Each is carved from solid resin, with stained and natural finishes to differentiate the two opposing sides. This set comes complete with a high quality board made from alternating squares of ebony wood and maple veneers, with a wood frame.
