Primitive Hand Crafted Wooden Folk Art Checkerboard

Antique Handcrafted Wooden Folk Art Checkerboard

Regular price $145.00

 

Product Description:  What a beauty of a farmhouse find!  This antique checkerboard has a great folk art, primitive appearance.  It features hand-painted black and white squares, faded mustard yellow stars on a dark red background.  The two ends are the bread board style, which originally may be what it was crafted from.  The back of the board shows the beauty of the aged darkening wood.  This wonderful checkerboard displays well.  With the age this shows, I am sure there is a story to be told.  

Dimensions:  20" L x 13 5/8" W x 7/8" thick. 

Product  Weight: 4 pounds 4 ounces

Condition:  Previously owned - used.  Holes, splits, cuts and color wear are present in the wood on front and back surface.  There is also a noticeable split down the middle of the board.  It appears the owner previously tried to repair it by inserting a 1/4" white piece of wood shown on the back.  The front of the board also has a thin piece inserted - dividing the two pieces although this piece is painted to match the design.  At the bottom of the front and back, a 1 3/4" opening is noticeable where a portion of the inserted piece of wood is missing. All is shown in photos. Still appears to be solid. A terrific collectible and displays well.
