Very Old Game Boards

These game boards are from the early to mid 1800's. The swans and elephant are hand-colored etchings mounted on linen and the game-board showing a mine w/tunnels is a lithograph. Beautiful graphics, don't you think?
Follow this link for explanations and examples of even more games dating as early as 1588-BibliOdyssey.

Tonight is my family's weekly game night and I wish we were playing THOSE.

Hi Eliza-
Aren't they incredibly beautiful?
