Wonderful Late 18th / Early19th CenturyCarved Wooden Game Board / Utensil Rack

A splendid piece ofearly American folk art, this circa 1780-1830 board is a wonderful representationof someone placing an artful element in an otherwise utilitarian item.
A piece such as this is often referred to as a 'game board' as it's primary function would have been tohave game and fowl hang from one of thewrought iron hooksas it awaited preparation from a cookor hearth attendee.
Likewise, as domestic workers would have returned from a garden or marketplace, the piece wouldalso have served to hold vegetables, herbs and periodcooking utensils.
As you can see the piece is a single piece of cherry or similar species wood, the original craftsman or owner made the piece unique in its formation with the carved designs.


Each of the wrought iron hooks is all hand forged, blacksmith made.
Today this piece would make an excellent way to display a set of period utensils, miniature baskets herbs, and other fine country antiques.
