Lord of the Rings chess pieces

£145.00

Commissioned by renowned English sculptor Dennis Fairweather, this set brings to life some of Lord of the Rings' most iconic characters. Approved by the Tolkien estate, the set is cold-cast and stained to give an antique finish, the two sides to this set are differentiated by an ebony/ivory colour. 

Key figures:
The light side:

  • King: Aragon, also known as Strider or the Heir of Isildur (3" tall)
  • Queen: Lady Galadriel
  • Bishop: Treebeard and Gandalf
  • Knight: Bilbo Baggins and Frodo Baggins
  • Castle: Hobbit hole and Rivendell
  • Pawn: Hobbits

The dark side:

  • King: Sauron, the Dark Lord
  • Queen: Shelob
  • Bishop: Saruman the White and Gollum
  • Knight: Nazguls
  • Castle: The dark tower of Sauron in Mordor and the mines of Moria
  • Pawn: Orcs

Included is a card identifying each figure and providing information and history on each. Antique finish only, made from cold-cast powdered marble and resin in Somerset.

We have pictured this set on the 16" Magdalen board (sold separately), though it also looks great on any of our 18" boards.
