This outstanding Civil War era advertising game board was put out by SNOW & BROWN, 29 Dauphin Street, Mobile, Alabama. The board measures 12 inches square when open and remains in excellent condition, strong at the hinge with a game surface that remains bright and nearly as new. The back which is exposed when closed, remains in pleasing condition while offering wear as good evidence of age, originality and period use and carrying. While we have not been able to date the establishment of the partnership of Snow & Brown at 29 Dauphin, Street, we found that Snow (J. H. Snow) commenced business at that address in 1855 and that the partnership business of Snow & Brown at the same location burned in 1874. One period description advised that the Dauphin Street establishment ’was an elegantly arranged and handsomely fitted up temple of music filled with pianos, organs, and musical instruments’. Equally well known in Mobile as a music teacher, Snow was a prolific publisher of popular Confederate sheet music from this same address on Deuphin, Street. (see: CONFEDERATE SHEET MUSIC by E. Lawrence Able) Among the several such was the JEFFERSON DAVIS GRAND MARCH published in 1861. An exceptionally nice item to set in with any Civil War era gaming or personal grouping, this neat old advertising game board will be of special interest to the collector of period Southern items. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
