Historic Art and Design. Antique Two-Sided Gameboard with Remarkable Color, Craftsmanship, and Condition.
A historic and beautiful game board that would impress within a period or modern home. Checkers/Chess/Backgammon. The red and black playing squares with clever gilt border which gives the illusion of a "raised" playing field, the field enclosed within another green border decorated by pin striping and corner cartouches. All within another gilt border and cut-nail applied picture frame molding. The reverse backgammon personalized with the initials FML within a central medallion centering precisely rendered geometrics. Incredible detail. Sensational finely crazed surface. About 16 inches square by 1 inch thick. American, ca. 1870. ASK FOR HIGH RES PHOTOS TO APPRECIATE THIS WORK OF ART
