Parcheesi and Checkers Double Sided Gameboard

Circa 1900: This 19.5" x 12.5" double-sided parcheesi and checkers gameboard is made of a a single slab of half inch thick poplar and features on one side an incredibly naive and beautiful four-color Parcheesi board with a large H in the central home square and, on the reverse, an equally folksy four-color checkerboard with five borders and added corner decoration. The board has a typical minor age warp and a fabulous worn surface that validate its age. The paint is honest and original and has the expected crazing we love to see on antique gameboards. This is an absolutely charming homemade board and will fit beautifully into any collection of gameboards or early American country antiques.
