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 backgammon board is beautiful and arrived quickly. The package was well wrapped to avoid any chips or breaking of the detailed craftsmanship. Great gift for the family who enjoys games.

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. Best of all, the item is extremely affordable. I highly recommend this vendor and this product. A+ rating! ======= Le jeu de backgammon que jai re?u ressemble exactement ? celui de la photo.

"Be careful. They are delicate"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

These are beautiful. Well crafted and finished. But be very careful - even though they are stone, they are delicate. When I was hanging the last two little ones the star point with the hole/ribbon broke off both of them. Darn! I would replace those two with two bigger ones except that they only come in the assorted set of 6. Still, now that you know this in advance, just be very gentle!

"A Beautiful Sculpture"

This sculpture is very beautiful and well made. When I pick it up I can tell its heavy and solid. They did not skimp on detail. Thank you so much for a great piece.
