The collection is limited to 128 pieces accompanied by a unique Backgammon game set.
Visconti perfectly captures this ancient game's mood and symbolism and presents a pen full of Italian creativity, outstanding craftsmanship, and artisanal design for all pen collectors to appreciate and admire. The history of backgammon dates back around 5,000 years to Persia and Mesopotamia, being the most widespread game in the large Western family of table games. The two-player game is played with counters and dice on table boards and has been recorded to have been played as early as the 17th- century in England.
Visconti pays tribute to this ancient game with a pen featuring subtle details and precise artistry. The body and cap of the pen feature a series of 'points' made in sterling silver and then enameled in vibrant red and jet black, a slow and detailed process.
Each Visconti Backgammon pen is presented in a large collectors box containing a hand-made, collectible game set made entirely of Italian palmellato leather, including customized dice and counters.
