Helena Inlaid Rosewood & Mother of Pearl Backgammon Set - Tournament

One of the world’s oldest and most loved games, so beautifully designed you’ll want to leave it on display even when it’s not in play. This Inlaid Rosewood & Mother of Pearl Backgammon Set from Turkish brand Helena will make a perfect gift for the traditional games enthusiast and a delightful addition to any living room or games room.  

The case is expertly hand crafted from real wood veneers on solid wood and the lid showcases a striking Rosewood, inlaid with a walnut panel with intricate finest mother of pearl detailing. Each piece featuring beautifully unique grain, meaning no two sets are the same.  

An aged brass tone clasp opens to an exceptionally smooth playing surface. Using the traditional art of marquetry, contrasting real wood veneers are hand applied to create the detailed playing points and decorative patterns. Side racks are ideal for organised play.
