    National Museums of Scotland Isle of Lewis Chess Pieces in Beautiful Presentation Case

    The Viking hoard of ninety-three pieces, carved from walrus ivory and probably made in Scandinavia in the 12th century, were found 700 years later in a sand-dune at Uig on the island of Lewis in 1831. The craftsmanship varies from piece to piece but it is often the facial expressions that reveal their true quality. The hoard contained four distinct sets with some traces of dark red colouring on some of the pieces. The pieces are currently owned by National Museums Scotland.
