An honest, rare example of a Model 1888 inverted V pattern Winchester cartridge board. Board features a 38" x 26" lithograph field labeled in large block letters across the top "WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO." with various other printed labels for the cartridges offered. A central round vignette shows a woodland bear hunter in action with his dogs, with 2 additional circle vignettes depicting cowboys roping a steer and a pair of moose hunters taking their game. Each of the vignettes is ringed by Winchester cartridges attached via their original wires, with a large inverted V of rifle cartridges running between them and some additional attractively placed shot shells, primers, and projectiles. In total there are 87 metallic cartridges, 10 shot shell cases, 6 primer tins, and 8 projectiles. Framed with an elaborate gilt liner within a 5-bead decorated oak outer frame with added protective glass. Most of the original "COMPLIMENTS OF / WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO." marked paper backing remains intact with some areas of loss. Overall measures 46 - 1/4 x 35". CONDITION: A good honest example showing the kind of patina expected with store display. The field is legible with some fading, crazing, wear spots, and cracking present. A professional cleaning likely would benefit its presentation. Original cartridges with the .45-120 a replacement. Frame shows some expected wear and separation with a burn on the left side. A hard to find, attractive board! BAS
