Description:

Inlaid Game Board, Canada, 1928, double-sided board inlaid with contrasting light and dark wooden segments, one side with sunburst, zigzag, and checkerboard, and the initials "P.D.N." and date "1928," the reverse with a Parcheesi game, 19 3/4 x 14 1/4 in.

Note: This game board was reportedly found in Montreal, built to scale for a wealthy family of circus performers.

On the Parcheesi side the varnish is worn mainly in the corner sections, there are some cracks to the inlay at the center, but there are no losses.
