Probably New England, ca. mid 19th century. Early country character and attitude. Pine with cut nail joinery. Original apple green painted "box" with deeply chamfered sliding lid enclosing a visually appealing gameboard in sage green and soft-yellow paint hues with black squares, the paint surfaces very dry and crystalline. Imagine this gameboard being carried by wagon or horseback. I have not previously encountered a paint decorated gameboard of this form. About 14 3/4 inches square x 1 3/4 height. Multiple display opportunities from closed and flat to half-open on its side. Charming.
