Bright and Beautiful Antique Game Board with Brilliant Composition
For the historic or modern home. Chess/checkers. Rich color-contrasts that are vigorous even across a room. Each square divided into halves with similar hues yet at different intensities, creating a dance that feels three-dimensional. The artist enclosed the board within a black border and frame, "the blackness" influencing the mind to interpret the enclosed colors with more saturation, while enlivening the border with gilt pin-striping and tiny bursts. American, ca. 1870. Cut-nail applied picture-frame molding to the single board. Excellent condition with a couple of minor fills. Superb finely crazed surface. About 15 1/2 inches square x 1 inch thick. ASK FOR HIGH RES PHOTOS TO APPRECIATE THIS WORK OF ART
