Small Checkerboard

Sweet small pine checkerboard in original paint. Late 19th century. Basically the size of a sheet of paper the piece measures 9 1/2" by 12 1/4". It is painted on a single 3/4" thick board. The mitered frame is attached to the face of the board as opposed to surrounding it. This gives the game board an interesting outer edge. The small red and white squares show brushstrokes giving the board a painterly appearance. This checkerboard will be a nice addition to any game board collection.
