Antique Parcheesi Game Board in Original Paint

Signed "F.E. Wentworth Painter"

Circa 1880s: F.E. Wentworth was a prominent business man in Whitman, Massachusetts. He owned the F.E. Wentworth Carriage Painting store (shown below). Measures 24 " x 20". Signed gameboards are rare, especially when they are done by professional painters. In the late 19th century, it was not uncommon for carriage painters to create elaborate gameboards because they were used to doing complex pinstriping on carriages. This wonderful six color Parcheesi board has two rows of pinstriping around the outside of the board and fabulous pinstriped cartouches in the center home square. The surface of this board is absolutely original and untouched and shows great use wear as if the same two players squared off against each other time after time after time.
