Tulip is part of Alexandra Llewellyn’s signature collection of hand-painted and hand-crafted backgammons. The London-based artist has grown an international clientele of virtues with her bespoke backgammons personalized to the commissioner.
A London Oak box opens to reveal Tulips once worth more than their weight in gold. The tulip was introduced to Europe by 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.
Chips available in semi-precious stones, wood, leather and bespoke materials upon request.
