19th Century 5 Color Checkerboard with Slate Blue Gray Border

Found in Maine

Circa 19th Century: Measuring just about 18" square, this checkerboardboard is an exceptional example of folk art paint decorated antique wooden gameboards. The appealing slate blue gray border with decorated white freehand border pattern graphically frames the graphic and unusual checkered central field. Chrome yellow, white, black, gold, and deep blue are used conservatively cover the surface to create a modern Escher-like feel with the gameboard's great positive and negative visual play. The reverse is also painted with the same care. Because of expected typical shrinkage, a few later nails have been added as historical in use repairs to the mitred frame and back of the board. This wonderful early game board was discovered in Maine and remains one of the most graphic checkerboards we have ever offered for sale.
