Product Information

The Celtic Legends Chess Set is inspired from Ireland’s mystical days when King battled King and in particular the battles between the Tuatha and Fomor tribes.

Each piece uses the weaponry of the period – the Tuatha Pawn has a spear and round shield and the Knight has a cudgel/axe. The Fomor were a rag-taggle bunch of warriors scavenging what weaponry they could with the Pawns using a small axe and dagger, the Knight uses a large axe and shield, while the King has a dagger and what spells he can conjure!


Material: Limestone

Made in: Dublin

Full Description

The Celtic Legends Chess Set is a very special gift from Ireland for the more sophisticated collector to treasure.

Chess board included, measures 38 x 38cm. Pieces range 4cm-8.5cm.

The Celtic Legends Chess Set is made from cold cast porcelain. This is a porcelain powder that is bonded so that they are both decorative and functional, which means they don’t break easily. O’Gowna was taught this process over twenty years ago by Royal Doulton master craftsmen.

The pieces are made from a mix of bronze and limestone on the bronze side and it is pigmented limestone on the ivory side. This means that the colour is all through the pieces and not just a coating

As this craft is handmade there may be visual variations, however, the same high quality of craftsmanship will apply to all sets.

The Celtic Legends Chess Set is an ideal Irish gift for:

  • St. Patrick’s Day Gifts
  • Anniversary Gifts (especially 9th wedding anniversary = pottery)
  • Birthdays Gifts
  • Christmas Gifts
  • Father’s Day Gifts
  • Mother’s Day Gifts
  • New Home Gifts
  • Retirement Gifts
  • Wedding Gifts

    Beautiful chess set pieces, fast delivery, and excellent service and support from Totally Irish Gifts. This set was an unexpected find on their website, but one I’m happy I found. Pieces are beautifully made and have a good feel to them when playing. I am completely happy with my purchase, the store, and the wonderful staff.
