Celtic & Viking Burgundy & Ivory Chess Set
Almost one thousand years ago the Celtic inhabitants of Ireland rose up under their King, Brian Boru, to fight the invading and colonising Vikings. Based on the battle of Clontarf in 1014AD, our chess set portrays many of the characteristics of the era. Our designers have depicted authentic and historically correct artefacts in splendid detail. The skill and workmanship of the Celtic tribes were demonstrated by their artistic and unique designs. These designs have been recognised throughout the world and reproduced here in this magnificent chess set.
