None other than King Arthur leads his army in this beautiful set of quality chessmen. Looking very regal in his crown and cloak, he is supported by his beautiful wife, Guinevere, who is adorned in a long flowing white gown. Merlin is easily recognisable as the bishop with his long flowing robes, grey beard and staff. Passelande, cloaked in the king’s colours, depicts the knight with Camelot standing as the rook. The army of pawns is depicted by an armoured Sir Lancelot.

Opposing King Arthur is King Lot and his troops. Supported by his wife Morgause and Mordred as the bishop. King height: 8.4cm; base 2.5cm
