The ChessBaron SAC Theme Chess Set Range

Studio Anne Carlton are a recognized leader in theme chess sets. Their hand painted sets are of particularly high quality. Collectible sets such as this range are in high demand in antique markets after some time has elapsed - many see the sets as an investment. The SAC genre is slightly less detailed in pieces than the Mascott range, though more uniform and established. Compare the two Sherlock Holmes sets we have (Sherlock Holmes SAC, Sherlock Holmes Mascott), you'll see the level of detail difference. Neither is superior to the other, they both have their strengths. However the SAC theme chess set brand is recognized and loved the world over.
Naturally, spare pieces are available for the chess sets if some unfortunate event should occur, although you'll find the chess pieces suprisingly robust and resistant to damage from accidents!

TH2001 Isle of Lewis Chess Set
A102. Heavy Weighted in Crushed Stone. King Size 3.75 inches
There are many variations of quality with Isle of Lewis chess set designs. Look for weight and detail as hallmarks of quality. Our Isle of Lewis chess sets are expertly made from crushed stone - they are substantially heavy and very detailed. The Isle of Lewis chess pieces are probably the best-known set of medieval chess pieces, and these are hand cast, hand-painted replicas of the best preserved specimens. The original Lewis chessmen were discovered on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides (off the coast of Scotland) shortly before 1831. The exact circumstances of the discovery are something of a mystery, most have a peasant stumbling accross a burial mound whilst chasing an animal, but there are numerous legends. Eighty two are in the British Museum, and the remaining 11 are in the National Museum of Scotland at Edinburgh. No board was discovered with the pieces, but a contemporary mosaic from Italy indicates that the modern 8 squares by 8 squares board of alternating dark and light colored squares was used, just as today. Each side has its own individual appearance, as each piece is slightly different, representing the hand-carved nature of the originals, but the pieces are still readily identifiable.

From the Isle of Lewis to the American War of Independence

The purchase of a plain or hand painted theme chess set from ChessBaron is a discerning purchase. A china ornament is just a china ornament - a finely detailed theme chess set with some historical object such as The War of Independence or The American Civil War is much more. A purchaser clearly needs something more thought provoking than a plate ornament, something that recalls something of importance. The theme chess set industry has a strong history - SAC chess sets are at the forefront of the genre.
