Deeply Carved American Civil War Cribbage Board.....Soldier-Made.....SALE PENDING
Likely Northeast, ca. 1861-1865. Carved from a thick, solid walnut plank. The board illustrates a soldier in profile, wearing a kepi, within a sawtooth border flanked by carved flowers, heart, and diamond, and beautifully carved highly-detailed pistols and crossed rifles. Each end finished with elegant scrolls and punched stars. The skill and care of the carver is well evident. About 14 inches long x 3 ½ tall x 7/8 thick. Easily stands on edge, lays flat, or would like to see it elevated in iron mount. HAPPY TO EMAIL HIGH RES PHOTOS....A remarkable object given the context in which it was made!
