Condition: Excellent, original, pierced for hanging
Additional Information: The playing surface is inset within a cove molded frame. The
black and oyster-white squares were laid out with a scribe; pumpkin/brown ornamented
border. A nice example that displays well.
The top is fitted with a game pieces drawer and is inlaid with anchors, a chicken,
rooster, duck, and butterfly, also people and stars. Within diagonal corners are found
two small paintings, a vignette of a spouting whale, the other a sailboat. The top is
raised on square legs having two brackets each; legs are joined by a medial shelf of
geometric gridwork design also featuring angled bracket supports.

This unusual slightly elongated board with yellow-painted serpentine sides and floral
decoration features mustard yellow squares against a green ground; oyster white
ornamentation, scrolling and striping. 12 1/2 x 15 3/4 in.
Graphic and colorful checkerboard featuring yellow, black and
red paint; corners banded in brass; one missing which we can have fabricated. The
parcheesi side centers a decoupaged lithograph…a lighthouse and its environs. Overall,
very good, small losses to lithograph as depicted, displays well.
Lipstick red squared within off-white faux inlay; fanciful bud-like flourishes ornament the
corners within red faux inlay border…all against the black ground. The square nail
applied molding features a ripple molded liner sans one side. Displays well.

The paint remains bright, likely stored away from harm and use! The board was well prepared by sizing before being decorated thusly preserving the painted surface.
