Lovely vintage condition. A few very minor scuffs to the leather surface, and very minor staining to the case. Otherwise 'Very Good' to 'Excellent' and ready to go.

A Note From Luke

Terrific 1920s-1930s backgammon set!  Made by Jaques, the famous English up market games manufacturer (also responsible for croquet and Staunton chess sets). Jaques's Hatton Garden premises (EC1) were destroyed during The Blitz in 1941.

A rare and desirable vintage set- this is the first one I've come across in a 25 year career. Recommended.
