The two kings at f8 and a1 are turned, with a central incised band, basal and upper raised bands and a small central round ball. The queen at d8 is similar to the king, but smaller and lacking the central incised band. The bishop, at f5, is similar to other early medieval bishop forms, and is seen in profile with only one ‘tusk' visible, though most probably having two. Both knight and rook are placed on pedestals, in contrast to earlier forms. The knights, at c3 and d6, have a turned base with a carved horse's neck and head. The rooks, at e2 and g7, are similar to the medieval form, but probably with a turned base. Pawns are conical with a terminal ball.
