Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc backgammon board
A limited edition of ten, this design captures the sunlight, blue sky and sea that entranced so many artists from Picasso to Matisse and also evokes deliciously carefree days at this swish retreat. Green palms and cedars strike up to the sky, counters are placed on blue isosceles, shimmering with Mediterranean ripples. The quality of the board is exceptional, hand made by London artisans, playing pieces are weighty white jasper and turquoise encased in polished brass. The whole comes in a pale grained masur birch box.
