A unique round backgammon board decorated with inlaid zodiac star signs and star constellations in Mother of Pearl and silver wire. This extraordinary backgammon set is made to order and can be personalized with the client’s star sign inlaid in their birthstone.
The handcrafted dovetail drawers are lined in blue leather and satinwood and contain the semi-precious playing pieces, blue calf leather dice shakers with inside lips, and doubling die and precision cut casino quality dice.
The playing pieces have been designed to mirror the sun and moon traveling around the stars in orbit. The sun playing pieces are made from cabochon Carnelian, a glassy, translucent stone known for its brilliant orange and red-orange crystals, perfectly compliment the cast solid Silver of the moon playing pieces, designed to reflect the surface of the moon as they shimmer around the board.
The Zodiac board breaks the boundaries of the traditional backgammon layout, which has been rectangular for over 5000 years. Its round design plays to the circular nature of the game, as well as referencing the orbits of the sun and moon, and the ancient astrological year.
