Parcheesi Board in Original Vibrant Four Color Paint Scheme

Inscribed "Made by G.K.S. Dec. 30 1898"

Circa 1898: Measuring 17 1/4"W x 17 3/8"H, this strikingly modern looking late 19th century handmade and decorated Parcheesi board is a superb example of turn of the 20th century American folk art. Constructed of a single poplar board and, to prevent warpage, ingeniously mortised on top and bottom with walnut strips, this wonderful antique gameboard was obviously the apple of its maker's eye. Note that after painting the board, the maker signed it "Made by G.K.S. Dec. 30 1898" directly above and below the stenciled home square and then put a thin coat of varnish on the top in order to protect the paint from damage and keep the colors from fading.
