Black & White Feathers is part of Alexandra Llewellyn’s signature collection of hand-painted and hand-crafted backgammons. The Lady Amhurst Pheasant is a rare breed, native to China but now extinct in Europe. Their plumes traditionally bring luck and here they are an ancient nod to the British countryside which was once their home. The London-based artist has grown an international clientele of virtues with her bespoke backgammons personalized to the commissioner.
The feathers are encased in a beautifully crafted Macassar Ebony box. The artwork is sealed with hand-applied lacquer. The compartments are lined in calf leather.
Chips available in semi-precious stones, wood, leather and bespoke materials upon request.
