The dazzling deep blue was inspired by ancient Persian pottery and lapis lazuli tiles of mosques and palaces across the Middle East. Meticulously crafted in the French workshop of Hector Saxe, it was then cased in fine velvet leather and imprinted with the menacing pattern of a Malaysian python.
With such worldly origins, we can only imagine where you'll end up playing with this luxury backgammon board... In an open air beach front resto in Thailand, the roar of surf obscuring the crisp snap of stacking checkers? On a private jet to Minsk, your distraught opponent praying for turbulence to upend the game he so clearly is about to lose? Poolside in Vegas in your private cabana, where you're stacking the odds in your favor, surrounded by curious, scantily clad onlookers?
Wherever you are, you'll feel at home as soon as you open the inlaid leather board to reveal white dice cups and shimmering blue and white checkers. It's an oasis of comfort, a languid leather surface to both soothe your mind and seize home court advantage. Because with a striking, superlative Hector Saxe under your arm, the world is truly yours.
