Three Color Parcheesi Board with Breadboard Ends

Striking Corner to Corner X Design

Circa 1900: In the days before radio took over as America's foremost evening pasttime, board games in front of the fireplace were our most popular form of family entertainment. People would spend many hours constructing one of a kind handmade gameboards for home use, and these endless variations prove a visual delight to the 21st century folk art collector. Measuring 14 1/2" square, this antique American Parcheesi board is constructed of a single piece of 1" thick poplar with breadboard ends that prevent the gameboard from warping. The red, black, and yellow squares are arranged in a dramatic corner to corner X design that increases the board's visual effect and desirability. Note the expected wood shrinkage and good honest wear that prove this handsome and folksy gameboard is completely original and untouched. The anonymous folk artist also put a super primitive checkerboard on the reverse side to get more use out of the board, but it is obvious that this person's love is the game of Parcheesi.
