Hand carved custom themed chess sets on etsy by Jim Arnolds Chess Sets. The Isle of Lewis Chess Set, one of the oldest and most popular chess sets of all time, un-earthed in the Scottish Isles somewhere around the 1800s, the chess pieces origin dates back to 1100-1200AD Norway, many countries including Iceland and Ireland have laid claim to this wonderful set of chess piece carvings, this is an on-going story with new information and theories brought forth all the time. I added a special look to the board by adding a replica of the Cathedral ruins at Hamar. The Cathedral was also built during the same time period as the chess pieces. The word "CHESS" is written in the alphabet of Norway circa 1100-1200AD. The chess pieces are entirely hand carved from solid Walnut and Maple. The kings have a base of 2.25" square by 4.25" tall. The chess board is also handmade from solid Maple and Walnut and measures a little less then 27" square.

Specializing in creating custom chess sets based on the ideas suggested by my clients. Holiday layaway available.
