DESCRIPTION

This limited edition of 10 backgammon boards was designed for the Terrence Higgins Trust.

20% of each sale goes support this important charity.

Lily is part of Alexandra Llewellyn’s limited editions 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.

The board is adorned with Cala Lilies and comes in a Macassar ebony box.

Chips available in semi-precious stones, wood, leather and bespoke materials upon request.

Introduced as a child to backgammon in the alleys of Cairo by her Egyptian step-grandfather, Alexandra's appreciation for the game and the inherent beauty of the board grew over the years.

After training as a fine artist in Leeds and the University of California, Santa Barbara, Alexandra in 2007 returned to London to head product development for The Prince's School of Traditional Arts. Founded by the Prince of Wales, the school aims to preserve and teach traditional craftsmanship techniques. During this time, Alexandra's interest in traditional craft, contemporary art and cutting-edge technology flourished, leading her in 2010 to design backgammon boards. This incredibly traditional pastime was the perfect way for Alexandra to express her love of materials, with wooden designs featuring beautifully textured feathers, antlers, butterflies, palm trees and vintage nude images.
