Antique American Double Sided Paint Decorated Gameboard

Hand Painted Scenes with Patriotic Sheilds

Circa 1876: it is getting harder and harder to find original 19th century American gameboards with patriotic motifs on the open market, and it is our pleasure to bring to you this highly decorated double sided checkers and backgammon board. The exquisite polychromatic paint scheme on the checkerboard is embellished with four different hand painted seascapes (pointing to its east coast origins) and patriotic American flag stars and stripes shields with excessive flourishes. The reverse is equally stunning with graphic and bold backgammon in orange, green, yellow and black with exhuberant and highly skilled flourishes. This gameboard is a delight andis of a rare, high caliber that doesn't surface frequently. Measuring roughly 17" square, this superb gameboard comes to the market in completely original, untouched, and unrestored condition. The board has excellent honeest wear with one thin sliver of molding missing on the upper right hand corner of the backgammon board as pictured. Note that the square nail contruction in conjunction with the patriotic motifs points to a manufacture date on or around the centennial. This is the finest patriotic gameboard we have ever offered, and it will fit in beautifully even in the most advanced collection.
