Williamsburg Wooden Checkers, 1970

Identifier: CFC2018.0052.1

In these replicas of eighteenth-century wooden checkers, the black pieces may well illustrate the story of the stag whose antlers got caught in the trees. The "browns" certainly illustrate MSA. Notice the miller and son carrying the ass across the top of the piece. At the right, the two ride together, while onlookers on the left criticize them. "Esopus" marks both pieces.

Dates: 1970
