Product Details

The Celtic people were inhabitants of areas of Western Europe, particularly Ireland, Wales, Brittany and the Highlands of Scotland. They were subjected to raids by Vikings and Norsemen and this chess set is the story of a battle between the Irish King, Brian Boru, and the Viking invaders. The battle took place at Clontarf, near Dublin and was a fierce encounter. Although the Celts managed to defeat the Viking invaders, their King, Brian Boru, was slain.

This chess set features the principal characters involved in the battle and depicts Celtic designs and artifacts of the period. Almost one thousand years ago the Celtic inhabitants of Ireland rose up under their King, Brian Boru, to fight the invading and colonizing Vikings. The skill and workmanship of the Celtic tribes was demonstrated by their artistic and unique designs, recognized throughout the world and reproduced here in these magnificent chess set pieces.

These chessmen are made out of Polyresin, which is a crushed stone composite. It has the look and feel of stone, but the durability of a plastic. It is truly the best of both worlds.

Beautiful Chess Set

I have bought chess pieces from all around the world looking for pieces suitable for the custom hand carved table I had built in 2003. Germany, Hungary, Russia, even Egypt, nothing quite worked. Then through an internet search, in an effort to purchase a gift for my son, a chess enthusiast, I discovered your web site. I took a chance and purchase him the Vikings vs. Celtic pieces you had listed. I was so impressed by the quality and the detail, I decided as soon as the holidays are over, I will put a set of your pieces on my table that will make this chess set both unique, and the master piece of my study.
