Personalisation Notes

The tulip is redolent with memories of my childhood. My father always had pots overflowing with different varieties and my Tulip backgammon board captures the excitement of waiting for them to emerge in a kaleidoscope of colour.

A flower celebrated for its extraordinary variety

Introduced to Europe from the Ottoman Empire in the 16th century, tulips were once worth more than their weight in gold. Symbolic of deep love, the design features some of Alexandra’s favourite varieties, from classic goblet-shaped tulips to spectacular fringed blooms.

attention to detail

Housed in a box crafted from oak sustainably sourced from a tree that once grew in London, the natural warmth of the wooden playing surface contrasts beautifully with the vibrancy of the photographic artwork overlaying it, with the brilliant colours of the tulips and veined marble triangles recreated with stunning photorealism upon the board.

 

entirely handcrafted

UK-based artisans oversee every stage in the creation process, including a master joiner, a leather artist and an authority in hand-lacquering. Using archival inks to reproduce exactly the intricate patterning of the tulips’ petals, Alexandra’s artwork is digitally printed on the board by a fine art printer, after which 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 malachite and mother of pearl playing pieces to complement her Tulip backgammon board, with personalisation of the pieces available.
