This Winchester Repeating Arms "W" cartridge board was manufactured around the 1890s and measures approximately 45 x 32 inches. 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 original outer frame is absent and the display has been installed in an outer display box with glass front. Approximate total measurement: 52 x 38 3/4 x 4 3/8 inches.

Rating Definition:

Fine center section (missing original outer frame), the slightly darkened background shows good color with some light wear and the cartridges are mostly showing an attractive antique patina. The original inner frame has been painted a dark brown/antique gold color and is showing mild wear. The custom made outer glass framed display box has minimal wear overall. A great display to add some character to your gun room!
