"Cased" Early Traveling Country Gameboard in Paint and Paint Decoration

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.
