Unique Hand Crafted And Hand Stitched Leather Backgammon Set
'Good Morning'.....The backgammon board and dice cups for this set are entirely hand crafted and hand stitched with thick blue linen thread. The following items are included:
- 63.5cm X 46.5cm all leather board when open (including central reservation which is 4.5cm wide). The top of the box is made with thick natural vegetable tanned leather which has been carved, embossed and coloured with deep penetrating permanent inks to create the branded mural. The image will not be used for any other item so it is a unique art work. The white lines are filled with flexible leather paint. The internal playing surface is made with natural vegetable tanned calf hide. The points are carved and coloured in shades of red and blue ink with white paint in the lines. Embossing tools were used to texture the orange area for rustic effect. The side bars are coloured in shades of dark grey, red, blue and purple with lighter shades of grey used for the neutral centre zone. The walls and back or underside of the board are made with thick, navy coloured vegetable tanned leather. The random engraved lines on the back are filled with red paint. The box is 5cm deep when closed. All visible edges are coloured pale blue.
- 2 rectangular hand stitched navy vegetable tanned leather dice cups fully lined with grey chamois leather. One has red engraved markings, blue stitching and blue edges. The other has light blue markings with red stitches and edges. They measure 8cm wide, 9cm high and 4cm deep.
- 30 grey and white 36mm high quality acrylic resin pearl effect stones or counters. They are superior in quality to the stones offered in our other sets and have no moulding marks.
- Four 16mm ivory coloured resin dice and a 22mm purple acrylic doubling cube.
It is 'box stitched' but is not a hard box like one that is made of wood. The leather is still soft which offers a gentle playing surface and significant rustic charm of a lost age.
