Painted Battle of Culloden Chess Set
Sculpted with great attention to detail and authenticity. This set shows the English and Scottish and the most important characters of the era prior to the famous battle at Culloden in 1746. Bonnie Prince Charlie was convinced that the Scots could beat the English in battle and thus the scene was set for Culloden. Fewer than 5000 rebels were mustered for the Prince’s Army. They fought the Duke of Cumberland’s Army of 6400 foot-soldiers and 2400 cavalry. The outcome of a particularly bloody battle was a victory for the English and a loss of 2500 rebel lives. 1800 Scots were taken prisoner.
