CHROME YELLOW, APPLE GREEN, AND SCARLET CHECKERBOARD WITH THE NAME OF THE MAKER PAINTED ON THE REVERSE:

Strong color is the best attribute of this ca 1850-1870 painted checkerboard, but this isn't its only forte. The heart-shaped scrollwork border, painted scarlet red, adds an interesting visual framework to the chrome yellow and apple green spaces. Further, the name of the maker, Willie Forrest, is painted on the reverse in shadowed, sign-maker's lettering, with a large yellow and green star underneath, painted within a red circle. The surface is outstanding, particularly on the sides and the reverse. The front has nice wear and the overall presentation is excellent.
