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.
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.
