Checkerboard

Unusual 3-color checkerboard. Rather than using a contrasting color for creating squares in a red playing field, the maker of this board chose to go 'tonal' by using another shade of red. The effect is more or less that of a 'shadow plaid' unique to us in the realm of game boards. This piece is from an old Wisconsin collection and easily dates c.1900. It measures 31 3/4" by 18 1/4". This is a great example of folk art and a wonderful example of the 'art of the game'.
