  • Alligator Backgammon

    £15,000.00£19,995.00 GBP
    In either matte or gloss finish; top grade Alligator is simply gorgeous!

    Our specialist team of master craftsmen who work on exceptional projects involving Alligator and other exotic skins; use their skills handed down from generation to generation to cut and handle these, often difficult, natural materials.

    But despite this patient and exacting work, it all pays off in the end and produces a wonderful piece of craftsmanship which stands out in any crowd. There are many “mock-crocs” produced (some we have used for clients wanting the look without the cost) but there is nothing quite like the real thing which folk “in the know” will instantly recognise.

    There are many materials we often put Alligator together with; from Shagreen, Ostrich, Water Snake and our Dauphin calf to compliment the Alligator if clients only require this for the case (it is not possible to obtain a perfectly flat playing field due to the scales on the skin, so a mix of other skins with Alligator or an entirely different field skin is often used for playability).

    Please note that the lead time for articles like this is often 6 months due to the CITES regulations in the country of origin where the skins originate from and the other countries they have to pass through to arrive here in the UK and then again to be re-exported to their final destination. Do not worry, – our team handle this process regularly and you will only get involved at the final stage when these are processed by FedEx and your local customs.

    Prices: Below is a rough idea of pricing, although skin prices vary depending on rarity, age and colour availability this will give you an idea of costs when twinned with other precious materials.

    A firm cost will be given when our Special Commissions team know exactly what your requirements are and have sourced the specialist materials required for the job.

  • Super-Enriched Backgammon

    £300,000.00 GBP
    When the only the best is required……

    Showcased here is a super-enriched personal commission for a private jet. An Alligator and Gold tournament size Backgammon.

    All hardware (locks, handle plates and rings) are 18ct solid hallmarked white Gold. The case and field are in finest Alligator (we use the same tanners as Hermès) in a gloss finish. The points have been inlaid in Shagreen (Stingray) which we source in the Far East.

    The stones/checkers are Gold, in white, and yellow finish. Then set with a one carat Diamond in each. To the edge, we have inlaid Shagreen and to the underside Alligator.

    With precious stones/checkers like these, they need to be protected, not just from the normal rigours of play but also from each other – so we designed a special padded suede stowage area at the front of the case to cocoon each in its own individual compartment sitting either side of the 18ct white Gold Doubling cube which has both initials and numbers set in Diamonds.

    The Alligator cups which are suede lined are stowed within a separate Alligator cabinet are joined by four 18ct white Gold spot dice with Diamonds as the “spots”! Also placed here are 4 ball cornered precision dice, all lined and padded in suede.

    To the outside of the case set into the centre of the lid is an 18ct white Gold plaque where initials are set again in Diamonds.

    To get the dice rolling, please email our Special Commission team to discuss your requirements – basically, anything can be done, so do not hold back!
