The $50,000 Dunhill Gentleman's Games Chest
For a cool $50,0000 London luxury goods firm Dunhill will furnish the modern gentleman with an exquisite games set finished in exotic shagreen, made from the skin of male stingrays. The Shagreen Games Compendium is handmade by expert artisans exclusively for Alfred Dunhill and is inspired by pieces in the Dunhill archive. The games chest is formed using cedar wood and then covered in the very finest grey shagreen leather and elegantly trimmed with ebony with stainless steel hardware. The shagreen provides a protective element as it is remarkably durable. The Compendium contains shagreen-embellished chess, backgammon and noughts & crosses boards with all counters and pieces finished in sterling silver. A bottom tray houses two packs of Dunhill playing cards, poker dice, bridge score cards and Dunhill pencils.
