These handmade backgammon sets are made of cherry or black walnut. Interesting decorations, specimens of a technique known as Marquetry, have been created by carefully placing intricate pieces of varied veneers side by side to give the effect of inlay.

A smaller interior box with playing pieces has a felt bottom (to not damage the board) and can be removed. A small magnet helps the lid of the box stay in place when closed. 

Measures 18.25" x 8.5" x 2.5" when closed.  
Measures 18.25" x 17" x 1.25" when open for play.
