A modern take on the time-honoured craft of wood marquetry, the Signature Abstract Turquoise backgammon set revisits our much-loved Abstract backgammon board through the prism of colour.

Bringing a real sense of style to this classic board game, the board features an original hand-drawn Alexandra Llewellyn design, recreated in intricate wood inlay. With echoes of the design codes of the Art Deco era, the board draws the eye in with its sleek, geometric lines realised in bird’s eye maple wood, dyed a soft shade of turquoise, mimicking the zebra-like patterning on the feathers of a Lady Amherst feather – an enduring source of inspiration for Alexandra. The optimum dimensions for play, the tournament-sized board is intersected by sharply defined triangles, accentuating the elegant symmetry of the design.

Entirely handmade in the UK from sustainable sycamore, walnut and turquoise bird’s eye maple wood, each piece of wood is selected for the quality of its colour and grain. The wood is then laser cut to fit the design before being assembled, piece by miniature piece, by an expert in the rare craft of marquetry. Once complete, the board is then sealed with lacquer, creating a perfectly smooth surface on which to play.

Touched by nine different workshops in the UK, this elegant backgammon set is a beautiful gift for the discerning backgammon player as well as an exquisite objet d’art to display in your home.

The Signature Abstract Turquoise backgammon set is presented with weighted and wrapped burgundy and cream calf leather pieces, complemented by a black calf leather doubling die and shakers, with inside lips to ensure fair and random rolls of the precision laser-cut dice. There is also the option to enhance the set with semi-precious playing pieces in tiger’s eye and turquoise, inlaid in polished brass – an opulent addition to the game.

To personalise the box lid with laser-engraved initials or dates, please select this option in the drop-down menu. For a custom engraving of a handwritten message, choose the personalise option and upload a photograph of your message written in black ink on a plain white background.

This backgammon board has been handcrafted in the traditional tournament size, with the layout designed to be the best scale for play
