Length 24 1/2"
Width 5 1/2"
Dated 1847 with initials MMGCD.
Raised wood work with what I think is a butterfly on the one end and a vase with flowers on the other. The horse is quite handsome in traditional red with nicely carved legs and a bobbed tail, common for a driving or plow horse. The mane is expertly carved and the horse has a very wide awake attentive expression.
This board is quite interesting because the horse's head is pointed towards the narrow end!
Sturdy, excellent condition.
