Lord of the Rings chess set

£95.00 GBP

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. We recommend playing these pieces on a 16" board.
