Lewis Chessmen

I've decided to keep this intriguing trio of chess pieces. They are stamped with BM (Brittish Museum) and are a stunning replica of the original dated 1200ad which were thought to be made from walrus ivory and whale bone. Originated in Norway, but where a hidden treasure that was to find its way to Ireland (the Isle of Lewis)  The Lewis Chessmen .
