Description

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.

Materials

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.

Alexandra Llewellyn

London-based artist Alexandra Llewellyn has garnered worldwide attention and a word-to-mouth clientele for her collection of creative handcrafted backgammon sets and bespoke game pieces. Whether inspired by personal experience or commissioned by the client, Llewellyn’s designs are both games and objets d'art.

The seed was sown when Alexandra played backgammon as a child in Cairo. Her opponent was ten times her age and although they had nothing in common, they were able to communicate through their shared love of the game.

Her signature collection includes creative collaborations with icons such as Terry O’Neil, Alice Temperley and the estate of Milton H. Green. Alexandra’s bespoke pieces have been commissioned by collectors, design virtues and institutions around the world including British royalty, Sir Richard Branson, The Four Seasons group or Vogue Magazine among others.

“I am forever inspired by how games bring us together and the conversations that ensue. Time is now our greatest luxury and games create a space in which we can enjoy time with our loved ones” says Alexandra.

Alexandra creates her clients bespoke pieces together with each of them individually, defining the theme and the design based on conversations and / or memories they might share with the artist.

Alexandra’s work has been published and talked about in publications such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, How to Spend It, Robb Report, Harper Bazaar, AD, Time Luxx, Telegraph Luxury, Tatler, Country& Town House, and Homes and Gardens.
