Rare Large Gameboard with Extended Ends
The simple black and natural wood squares game area is flanked on two sides by areas for placing the game pieces. These areas are separated from the game board by a simple rounded moldings. The entire board is framed with a simple 3/8" flat molding. Interestingly, this board was never hung, likely stored against the wall or tucked behind a piece of furniture. The back shows signs that the board was used as a table in the workshop. The small saw kerfs on the edges do not show from the front.
The overall condition is excellent. There are a mix of cut and wire nails fastening the moldings. Our take is that the outer molding strips are an early 20th century repair as they are fastened with wire nails only. They have good age and color, so they look right for the piece.
The rare size and good color make this a nice addition to your collection or a great piece for that wall of Americana in your house.
