These lithograph boards were produced c. 1902, and represent the older 1897 style cartridge boards without having any physical cartridges attached. The board is mounted in a 3 inch broad flat wood frame that is totally original, 57 3/4 inches wide by 39 3/4 inches tall, with a gold painted border around the 31 1/2 inch by 49 1/4 inch green board. In the center is a vignette of two Winchester-armed hunters behind a dead bear in a woodland scene, which is flanked with a moose head and a mallard in flight. Over 100 cartridges, bullets and primer tins are represented in the "Double W" pattern. This board saw the addition of some new cartridges that were not represented on the 1897 pattern board, as well as a repositioning of the mallard so that it is not blocked by "cartridges".
Very fine, the board itself showing vibrant color with minimal fading, some scattered mild wear and minor scuff, and a moderate warp (outward) in the center. The frame is also very fine with some scattered minor handling/storage wear and retaining most of the gold finish on the inner border. A fantastic piece for improving the display of your Winchester collection!
