This is a folk Art Item, It was made pre 1900 and looks well used. Parents and others used to make childrens toy or game for people to use. This was make with plank boards and small edge was applied. The side with the checkers the edging was raised above the edge so as to hold the checkers. The other side is more colorful and lovely, I have not cleaned it or touched it I am so bad about cleaning thing. You will have to clean this yourself. There is some smearing and I think the color could be spectacular. The size is 17 1/2 inches X 24 1/4 Inches. This is heavy I will say 25 to mail and I will return unused postage.
Thanks to Jody from Wisconsn--------"The Mystery game" on the reverse side of checkers is Parcheesi. It is a well known game played with dice markers or pieces to denote each player. It is played much like the "Modern" game "Trouble". Thanks ruth
