I wanted to convey the childlike joy of blowing on a dandelion head and making a wish as the seeds float away on the breeze before taking root in the ground, creating new life.

Make a wish

A hardy yellow flower symbolic of our inner child who often forgets to play, the striking series of photographs captures the ephemeral beauty of a dandelion with astonishing clarity upon the board, while the printed triangles recreate perfectly the swirling patterns found in walnut burr wood.

 

A game of contrasts

Housed in a box handcrafted from Macassar Ebony wood, our Dandelion backgammon board juxtaposes the striking photorealism of the dandelions with the natural warmth of the wooden playing surface, dyed a dramatic shade of black.

a flawless finish

Alexandra’s incredibly intricate photographic artwork is digitally printed on the board by a printer who specialises in the reproduction of high-quality fine art. Each delicate seed head is captured with exquisite photorealism as it floats across the board, carried by an invisible wind. The board is then transferred to a hand-lacquering workshop, where it is polished and sealed for a matte satin finish.

Elevate your game

Designed to enhance your game of backgammon, semi-precious playing pieces are a luxurious addition to our Signature backgammon sets. Alexandra recommends turquoise and mother of pearl playing pieces to complement her Dandelion backgammon board, with personalisation of the pieces available.
