The "Isle of Lewis" Chess pieces should not be missed in any collections of gorgeous chess pieces. Not only are they a pleasant contrast to the commonly used Staunton design, but they have a historic touch to them too, being replica of medieval chess pieces, found on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland. Not many medieval chess pieces survived, and they give an interesting insight of the craftmanship of chess pieces centuries ago. Originally they were made from walrus ivory, and to achieve an outstanding visual similarity, the Isle of Lewis Chess Pieces from the National Museum of Scotland are made from poly-resin, using 3D scans of the original. All made in the UK.
