Details

Warm travertine makes a neutral background for dramatic black and rose marble. Skillfully combining the colors of natural stone, the Sierra Family crafts a backgammon set sure to provide hours of retos (challenges). The playing pieces are sculpted from rose and black marble, and the game set includes three dice; the numbers on the betting die are traced by hand.

Because each piece is crafted of natural stone, there may be slight variations in color and grain from that pictured.

The actual backgammon set that I received looks exactly like the one in the photo. The shipper did a very good job of packaging, and the shipping process (from Mexico to Canada) was very smooth.

"Nice Chess set"

Although not large it was perfect for my needs and I was looking for a black and white set. This did the trick for a reasonable price.

"Absolutely perfect! Beautifully crafted"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was looking for a chess set to replace a set that had been broken. We had purchased our original set whilst on holiday in Mexico back 2011. There is a slight colour variant to our original set but this is a perfect replacement to help me reminisce of such a happy time spent with my husband. And now I have a new set which I can now share with our children as well, teaching them how to play and making memories as a family. Thank you so much for this beautifully crafted set. The attention to detail is brilliant

I never thought tic-tac-toe could become a true piece of artwork--this set has the perfect weight and is achingly gorgeous in real life. A fun heirloom collectible for sure.

"Lovely piece or carved art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ordered this small catchall for my car keys. I am so very happy with this lovely work of art. It is really delicate looking and so nicely carved. The colors are vibrant and I feel I might just have it on an end table as part of the decor. It is apx 6 1/2 inches long by 4 1/4 inches wide. I am very pleased, thank you.
