Celtic & Viking Handmade Chess Set
This could be the ultimate Christmas present for a true chess enthusiast.
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.

The high skill of the designers, sculptors and craftsmen of Studio Anne Carlton shines through in their collection of hand made chess sets. The richness of finish and attention to detail contribute to the success of the beautiful products from the range. The chess sets are produced in finishes made from crushed stone poly resin. These regular sets are in a burgundy and cream plain finish with a light dark wash to emphasise the detail in the pieces. Please be aware the chess sets do not come with a chess board.
Studio Anne Carlton chess pieces are highly sought after in the collectable markets. The fact that these highly prized pieces are completely hand made makes volume production out of the question. Consequently many of the earlier and discontinued sets are returning substantial prices when appearing at auction. The sets are avidly collected by enthusiasts all over the world.
