Americana Folk Art Chinese Checkers Board Handcrafted by John Hulbert


Shipping to United States: Free

This rare piece of Americana folk art is circa 1930s-1940s and hand crafted by John Hulbert as the back attests to. This piece has applied edge trim with brad nails/finishing nails used to secure the trim. There are two drilled keyhole hangers on the back.

The board has a crackle appearance and a split in the wood, perhaps intentionally made by the artist. One edge of the applied trim overhangs the piece. Unsure as to why this was done.

John Hulbert, 1885-1944 and a woodworker by trade, was from Indiana and was the son of James and Mary Jane Turner Hulbert.

One of Hulbert's other creations, a backgammon board, sold for $1250.00 in 2013 on eBay.

Dimensions are 12 ½" x 12" x 1 ⅛".

This piece is priced based on the final auction price paid for the backgammon board mentioned above and my subjective valuation of this piece of folk art while taking into consideration the current interest and market for folk art and Americana.

Please do let me know if you require more information or more photographs.

Shipping will be insured.

Thank you for looking.
