Popular modern Romanian sets, also used in clubs and competition from the 1980ies till now. They come in a box with chess board outside and backgammon board inside, including disks and dices for checkers and backgammon. There are 6 different sizes: NR1=26cm, NR2=32cm, NR3=38cm, NR4=45cm, NR5=50cm, NR6=65cm.
Note that small set here misses the usual flower decoration on the board. Maybe because it is older or of another manufacturer. It's bishops have tops in opposite colour, which is not the case in the larger sets.
