About J.R.R. Tolkien...

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on 3 January 1892 in Bloemfontein, the son of an English bank manager. But he was destined to be an orphan by the age of 12 when his mother died, his father having already died when the young Tolkien was only 3.

Educated at King Edward's School, Birmingham and Exeter College, Oxford, Tolkien graduated in 1915 with a first class honours degree in English Language and Literature.

The following year he was to marry Edith Bratt whom he had first met when he was just 16. The relationship was prohibited by his Catholic guardian, Father Francis Morgan, on the grounds that Edith was Protestant. Upon threats to terminate his university education, Tolkien was forbidden to meet with her again until he was 21. Tolkien waited.

On the day of his 21st birthday, he contacted Edith. In the belief that he had forgotten her, she had become engaged to another man. They met under a railway bridge and renewed their love for each other. The engagement ring was returned and she married Tolkien.

The Hobbit (published in 1937) and the first two volumes of the sequel The Lord of the Rings (published 1954-55) were written while Tolkien was a fellow at Pembroke College, Oxford. The Lord of the Rings comprises three volumes - The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King.

Tolkien began writing The Lord of the Rings when he was aged 45 to be finished 12 years later but it would not be published until he was actually 63 years old! Throughout its composition, Tolkien held a full-time academic position and was an examiner, so progress was inevitably slow.

His own life experiences inevitably found expression in the work. Childhood memories of locations in Birmingham and his experiences during active service during World War 1. But, a deeply religious man, Tolkien always held that The Lord of the Rings inherently reflected within the story and its symbolism his own Roman Catholic view of the world as well as various mythologies such as Celtic, Norse, Finnish and Germanic.

Your Assurance of Quality from CheckmateChessSets

At CheckmateChessSets, we are only prepared to offer to our customers Lord of the Rings chess sets of the highest quality and craftsmanship by Mascott - Made in England. Our Lord of the Rings themed chess set pieces are derived from original sculptures painstakingly crafted by a highly skilled craftsman. This original is then used to produce a master mould from which further moulds are created. It is into these moulds that a mixture of heavy ground marble combined with a resin mixture is poured.

Once the sculpture has set it is then removed from the mould and either hand painted by skilled artisans to produce the decorated theme chess pieces or simply stained to produce the plain theme chess pieces.

These beautiful Lord of the Rings theme chess pieces by Mascott - Made in England which are yours to own are the result of this process, a process which creates a product of both natural durability and, crucially, also of the right medium to create the most intricate and exquisite detailed scuptures.

But we don''t want you just to take our word for it - thanks to our unique collection of high resolution close-up images you can see for yourself...right now!

Our Lord of the Rings chess sets are for the discerning collector and are of the quality that should appreciate in value over the years. We know that many of our theme chess sets are destined to be handed on to the next generation with affection and pride and, in fact, some of the older theme chess sets are already achieving excellent prices at auction.
