  • Product Description
Bring your imagination to life with our wide range of figurine chess pieces. Each Chess Piece is crafted from crushed stone. These chess pieces are replicas of one of the most famous chess sets of all time. The originals, made from walrus tusk, were discovered on the Isle of Lewis off the West Coast of Scotland and are now housed safely and securely in the Museum of London and in Edinburgh. This set was also seen in the first Harry Potter movie.

Polystone is a compound made up of polyurethane resin mixed with powdered stone, which gives the chess pieces added weight and a porcelain or "stone-like" feel that is fairly durable. Additionally, polystone is slow to wear, making it ideal for collectors and casual players alike.

This is a full set of 32 Chess Pieces. Chessboard not included.
