The story goes that in 1930-40 some workmen that were restoring a Victorian home had to wait for supplies. While they languished, some enterprising soul created this game board from plaster and wood. Somehow I believe it. Why else would this even exist? ? ? Couldn't you see this being used for a rousing game of checkers with period soda bottle tops? I am convinced that it happened just that way too. What else would be available? The fact that it has survived is astounding. It was surely never meant to linger past the uneventful wait for whatever it was they were needing. Measuring 19" x 19 1/2" - it weighs A LOT! The wool felt backing is torn. It is ready to be hung or used as a table top [ carefully ] or as a functional game board for some crusty curmudgeonly family members. Purchase price includes shipping.
