Painted Pine Checkerboard with Orange Border

Circa Late 19th Century: Measuring 16"H x 14"W x 1 7/8"D, this fantastic gameboard is made from a single slab of nearly 2" thick pine and has a slide lid compartment on the reverse that would have held its checkers. The board retains its orginal orange and black paint decoration and numbered paper squares in the classic western 19th century typeface and exhibits proper wear to both the paper and the crazed paint. The wood itself has the excellent dark oxidized patina of great age. This is an interesting and unusual early checkers board that is graphically pleasing and completely untouched.
