   SUBSTANTIAL FOLDING CHECKERBOARD WITH LARGE SCALE SPACES, GREAT SURFACE, AND COACH-PAINTED BACK AND MOLDING, CA 1850-1870:


 

Description:
Thick, heavy and large scale folding checker and chess board with unusually large squares. The front of the board is painted in black and white with gilt-painted trim and has excellent patina. This is a craftsman-made example, as evidenced by the decorative carriage painting in scarlet red and gold gilt on the reverse, and the gilded, decorative trim around the molded edge, where the initials �CHC� can be found, either as the signature of the maker or the initials of the owner. This uncommonly hefty example is also notably early, dating somewhere in the 1850-1870 period.
