The Lewis Chess Set
 Known as "the outstanding chessmen of the world", these famous inhabitants of The British Museum were found on the Isle of lewis, Scotland, in 1831. Dating from the 12th century, these wonderfully expressive figures were made in either Britain or Scandanavia from walrus ivory. Cast from moulds of the original pieces, these are authentic replicas of the Lewis Chessmen. Both an exact size and miniaturised full set as well as individual pieces are available to purchase.
