Hand Crafted And Hand Stitched Leather Backgammon Set
The backgammon board and dice cups for this set are entirely hand crafted and hand stitched. The following items are included:
- 52cm X 47cm all leather board when open. The playing surface is made with extra thick non-dyed vegetable tanned cow hide. The points and all the marking lines are randomly carved and coloured with deep penetrating permanent ink. The points are coloured in shades of red and blue and surrounded by orange with a black border. The white lines are filled with flexible leather paint. The back of the board is lined with soft black chamois leather which is stitched to the board with strong red linen thread. The hinges are made of a double layer of strong ribbed silk ribbon stitched with thick silk thread.
- 2 hand stitched vegetable tanned leather dice cups fully lined with black chamois leather. One is coloured in shades of red and the other in blue to complement the coloured points. Both have an orange bottom. They measure around 7.5cm high and 6.5cm in diameter.
- 30 blue and white 36mm pearl effect plastic stones or counters. These are value stones which I've hand finished to minimise any moulding marks. One slightly misshapen blue stone is included but they are still an attractive set. You can always upgrade to more exotic stones later which I chose not to include to avoid greater expense.
- Four 16mm ivory coloured dice and a 22mm translucent blue/purple doubling cube with white numbers which are made of resin.
