Description

A London Oak box opens to reveal Tulips once worth more than their weight in gold.

The tulip was introduced to Europe from the Ottoman Empire in the sixteenth century. It is known as an extraordinarily beautiful and varied flower, as well as the cause of the first ever speculative bubble – the Tulip Crisis in the Netherlands. The tulips are housed in an Oak Box, sourced from trees growing in London. The artwork is sealed with hand-applied lacquer. The compartments are lined in calf leather.

The shakers are black calf leather with inside lips to ensure fair and random rolls of the precision laser cut dice. The doubling die is embossed weighted leather.

There are two choices for your accompanying playing pieces. Either weighted and wrapped leather in red and cream, or gold and silver weighted aluminium with leather bases. Both options measure 45mm x 11mm and weighs 40g each. Alternatively, see our bespoke stone playing pieces as an elegant addition.

We can also personalise your box with engraved initial, see personalisation options in the drop-down menu. For a handwritten message choose this option and then email us with the message in black ink on a plain white background.

This backgammon board has been handcrafted in the traditional tournament size, with the layout designed to be the best scale for play.
