A real statement piece, the design reflects the spiralling sensation of falling into the vortex while playing poker – the anticipation of reading your opponents at the table before you play your next hand, of drawing then in as you prepare to bluff, and the excitement of the dealer exposing your cards.




  • Walnut box measures 35cm x 35cm x 12cm
  • Houses 305 traditional clay poker chips in four colours and two packs of Alexandra Llewellyn Signature playing cards
  • Engraved orange agate dealer button, inlaid in brass, and mother of pearl blind buttons
  • Sustainable marquetry woods include ziricote, bird’s eye maple, American black walnut, sycamore, padauk and tulipwood
  • Very limited run
  • Made in England


The concentric design is highly complex, with the circles comprising hundreds of pieces of purposely chosen wood. Shaped according to the direction of the grain, each piece is cut by hand by the marquetry artist so that the patterning on the surface of the woods aligns perfectly with the position of the circles within the design, which radiate across all sides of the box.


Like the growth rings that indicate the age of a tree, Alexandra’s handsome design reflects the hypnotic pull of poker, when the table becomes your world, you are completely absorbed in the tension of the moment and all that matters is your opponent’s reaction to your next hand.


The incredible attention to detail continues inside the box, with the inner lid featuring concentric circles of alternating ziricote wood and walnut, inlaid with the classic suits in a pack of cards. Using a piece of wood chosen for its deeper tone, the marquetry artist has created a trompe l’oeil effect behind each of the four suits, introducing a beautiful sense of three-dimensionality.



Housing 305 traditional clay poker chips, custom made by the oldest poker chip makers in the US, and two packs of Alexandra’s Signature geometric playing cards, the dealer button is carved from semi-precious orange agate, laser engraved with the letter D, and the blind buttons cut from luxurious mother of pearl.



The perfect gift for a poker lover, it is possible to personalise the Vortex poker set. We recommend engraving the orange agate dealer button with the recipient’s initials or the handwritten message of your choice on its face. Alternatively, please get in touch to discuss collaborating on a bespoke poker set, designed in your very own colours.


Backgammon board box lids and Stone Playing Pieces can be personalised with laser-engraved initials, dates, or even a short message. You can request engraving during the online checkout process.
