Petite Antique American Chinese Checkers Gameboard with Orange Ground

Vibrant 7 Color Paint Scheme

Circa 1920s-1930s: Because small gameboards are difficult to find and also fit in a wider variety of places than do their larger counterparts, collectors are always searching for petite borads. This handsome seven color paint decorated 14" x 12" oak Chinese checkerboard housed in its original frame certainly fits the bill. The delightful and unusual orange ground calls attention to the game and makes it a major focal point even though its size is diminutive. The oak board, the oil based enamel paint, and the early art deco frame help date this example to the 1920s or 1930s when Chinese checkers was at the height of its fashion in American popular culture.
