This is a box backgammon, typical for the eighteenth century, with deep borders that allow the board to close to form a box. The leaves are elongated, so that the playing area on each leaf is narrow. The points are painted in red and white.
Playing pieces are of natural (white) and stained (black) beech wood; and these are supplied, with two bone dice, in a drawstring leather pouch.
All our boards are made of quarter-sawn oak, each with their own distinctive figuring; so the board supplied may differ slightly from that shown in the picture.
