Description [ – ] [ + ]

Istanbul, a city of mystery and rich culture, home of the Grand Bazaar and the beautiful Hagia Sophia, is the namesake for this beautiful wooden backgammon set from Dal Negro.

Dal Negro's large, luxurious Istanbul wood backgammon set features a magnificent ebony tulip wood playing field inlaid with maple and cherry wood points, reminiscent of the florid streets by the Bosphorus.

The exquisite, high-gloss mother-of-pearl stones complement the backgammon set's stunning ebony wood case, created with a painstakingly elaborate macassar motif by Dal Negro's expert artisans.

Certainly, this wood backgammon set is a fortuitous choice due to its trademark Dal Negro "invisible" cylinder hinges and the set's well concealed magnetic closures.

The Istanbul wooden backgammon set comes complete with dice cups, dice, doubling cube, and rules booklet.
