1930s-1940s Painted Red and Black Checkerboard

Unique relief carved checkerboard wells and bold graphic paint

Circa first half 20th Century: The previous owner cleverly hung this board diagonally, and we've left it that way. Striking and simple, this 16" square painted black and red wooden gameboard is bold and striking with carved relief trays and highly imaginative circular inset playing field adding to its bold, sculptural three-dimensional elements. This is a wonderfully creative example of 20th century American folk art and is the only checkers board we have seen in this unusual form.
