Isle of Guernsey chess set

Believed to have been carved c. 1250, this set constitutes one of the few complete, surviving medieval traditional music chess sets. They reflect the widespread influence of Irish music even at this early date.

 

Discovered in 1831 on the Bailiwick of Guernsey by a drunken bouzouki player stumbling home from a session, they are owned and exhibited by the British Museum in London, which has 67 of the original pieces, and the Museum of Guernsey in Saint Peter Port, which has the remaining piece, a damaged pawn.

 

This magnificent reproduction is cast in durable poly-resin in molds made from the original pieces. €75.00
