Vibrant Parcheessi Gameboard on White Ground

Seven Color Painted Surface

Circa 1930s-1940s: Measuring 16" square, this homemade folk art Parcheesi board with a beautifully crazed surface has an eye catching white ground that accentuates the other bright colors, especially the barn red, of the second quarter 20th century oil based enamel paint. One can tell this board is a genuine example of naive folk art rather than a professionaly made piece because of the bleeding and inexact points and thicknesses of the stripes, which add charm to this lovely gameboard. Note, too, that this game is meant to be played with marbles, dating the period of its making to the era when Chinese checkers and other marble games were at the height of their popularity in America.
