"Rare & Very Old Wooden Checkers"--answer

:lol: This fine company was established in the 1850's and they were in business for over 100 years. Over those years the company burnt down a few times, but they always came back. One of their many wooden products, which is rarely seen today, was of course a fine set of wooden checkers. "Checker Trivia" question of the Day"? What was the name of this interesting company? :lol: "Inky"

:lol: The Newton and Thompson Co. of Grandon, Vt. made many kinds of wooden products starting in the mid-1800's. Of course the one I liked most was their beautiful dovetailed wooden box of checkers with their name burnt into the lid. This is a rare one of a kind checker set to be found here in our museum. :lol: "Mr. Checkers"
