NEW YORK GAME BOARD

Classic coach painted game board found in western New York. Coach decorated game boards such as this were often done in shops by artists. Decorations including striping, cartouches, and use of gold gilding were characteristics found in other painted objects from boxes to trade signs. Dating to the 4th quarter of the 19th century, this example has the hallmarks of such a piece. This is a heavy board measuring 18 1/2" square. Although there is surface wear to this piece, its color is vibrant.
