This Winchester Repeating Arms "W" cartridge board was manufactured around the 1890s and measures approximately 32x45 inches not counting the outer oak frame. The cartridges and components represented range from the tiny bb cap to the massive 4 gauge and total over 100 items not counting the individual caps. The main cartridge display forms a large "W" clearly signifying Winchester, and the background has attractive vignettes of a western hunter on the plains firing a Winchester while using his horse for cover and two hunters armed with Winchesters in a winter scene while the center has a brace of duck suspended from the "H" trademark. The back has the factory label instructing that it should be hung in a prominent place, and it will certainly look very nice today hung prominently in your gun room or shop.
Fine with moderate overall wear from age and display including some scrapes, aged patina on the brass, and other appropriate wear. The gold "corner round" trim on the interior portion of the wood frame has been repainted many years ago. The display background has aged but remains vibrant compared to most surviving examples. These "bullet boards" continue to raise in price. Relatively few complete boards exist, and they are important and popular Winchester collectibles.
