This handsome carved board is a dark green color. The board decorations are varied very precise and show the tiniest finest chip carving we have ever seen.

The horse handle has a gracefully arched neck, reins, carved tail and eyes that are chip carved. The one ear is worn - no doubt from petting.

The one upper corner of the board is a bit puppy chewed, but quite solid. Overall, the board in is in excellent condition with that exception.

Someone attached a leather display strap, which seems to all right, but not sure I would trust it for wall hanging.

Edges are beveled beautifully. Whoever made this board was a fine craftsman.
