Octagonal Chinese Checkers Gameboard with Chrome Yellow Border

Vibrant Seven Color Surface

Circa 1920s: The chrome yellow border and unique octagonal shape on this old wooden single board Chinese checkers gameboard frame the game in a graphically pleasing way that contrasts with the six-pointed star's hexagonal center. The bright colors and crazed surface with strong patina on the reverse help date this painted seven-color board to the early 20th century when the game of Chinese checkers and other marble games became popular in America. This formidable 21.5" x 16" board with its vibrant yellow border against a pitch black ground has a typical slight warp that does not detract from its incredible visual appeal.
