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 Olive Burl Backgammon Set from Manopoulos 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 olive wood veneers on solid wood, each piece featuring beautifully unique grain, meaning no two sets are the same.
Twin branded gold tone clasps open to an exceptionally smooth playing surface. Using the traditional art of marquetry, a seriously striking olive wood veneer is inlaid with contrasting wenge and mahogany playing points and decorative patterns.
