Unused fancy dart board


This is a wood dart board made circa 1940 but never used. There are no markings to indicate who the maker was. My conjecture -- the board was made as a gift and the recipient did not want to mess it up with dart damage. Usually I go for primitive, quirky game boards but this one appealed to me precisely because it is the opposite of that. The maker was meticulous and highly skilled.

  2. Thanks, Barbara. It's very unusual and was once owned by the author of a game board book.
