I am not sure what this cribbage board is made of, but I have never seen another one like it. The bottom could be Bakelite or another heavy material. The board weighs 1 ½ pounds and is made up of many layers in alternating black and cream colors. The bottom is highly polished and the top is a matte finish. The holes are perfectly aligned and the top also has the outline of the symbols of the four suits in a deck of cards. Measurements are approximately 13 ½” by 31/2” by ½”. There are the usual scratches from use, and one bottom corner has a chip. See pictures. There are no pegs but I will supply 6 wooden ones, 3 natural color and 3 black that fit perfectly and look great.
