Double Sided Parcheesi / Checkers Board in Original Paint

Nine Color Board with Patriotic Stars

Circa 1870s: Both sides of this striking 15 3/4" square nine-color antique game board are incredibly graphic with super visual pop, high contrast, and the best original painted surface. The wonderful star corner blocks on the Parcheesi board attract the eye, point the viewer to the game's central home square, and symbolize America's centennial anniversary and the coming together of a healing nation in the decade after the Civil War. The reverse is equally pleasing with its checkerboard and its spectacular dry and undisturbed first surface. The square nail construction and the expected shrinkage also speak to the gameboard's great age and outstanding quality. This is 19th century American patriotic folk art of the first order and will come straight from our own parlor wall to yours.
