Giant Lewis Chessman Replica at the British Museum Shop

    Newer Older

    I wonder if the British Museum is willing to give this guy out on loan too... . Would look fabulous in our office! ;) Anybody knows 'which' chess piece this one represents? Pretty sure it's not the horse.

      I don't think he knows it, judging by his face!

      Actually, that's one of the queens (should be holding a mead horn).

      Ah, so it's 'giant Lewis not-chesswoman' then... . ;) Thanks for identifying her, Sonja.

      Hi Norm,

      There's a good chance those weren't actually chess pieces, but from a different board game.
