Personalisation Notes

The feathers of the Lady Amherst pheasant have been a constant source of inspiration to me. Among the most spectacular in the animal kingdom, the simplicity of the design makes this the perfect board for seasoned players.

Birds of a feather

A nod to the British countryside that was once its home, the Lady Amherst pheasant is a rare breed named after the British naturalist who was responsible for sending the first specimen to London in 1828. Its dramatically speckled and striped tail feathers, topped with red plumes, traditionally bring luck and are highly prized among collectors.

A game of contrasts

Juxtaposing the striking colours and photorealism of the Lady Amherst feathers with the red velvet of the triangles and smooth white playing surface, our Black & White Feather backgammon board is housed in a box made from richly coloured Macassar ebony wood box with a naturally striped appearance.

Touched by nine expert artisans

Each backgammon set passes through the hands of nine different artisans in the UK, including a master joiner, a leather artist and a hand-lacquering workshop. An exact reproduction of Alexandra’s original design, the artwork is printed on the board by a fine art printer using archival inks and hand-lacquered for a matte satin finish.

Elevate your game

Designed to enhance your game of backgammon, semi-precious playing pieces are a luxurious addition to our Signature backgammon sets. Alexandra recommends black marble and red jasper playing pieces to complement her Black & White Feather backgammon board, with personalisation of the pieces available.
