DECO DARTBOARD w/wires
Found another Deco Dartboard. This one has a very rare look because it actually has wires on it. First one i have seen.

Deco was an American Style dartboard manufacturer located in Philadelphia Pennsylvania that started back in the 1920's. Most were made of wood and painted with a stencil. No wires. I have many of these style boards but this one was the first I have seen with wires. There is currently one on ebay that is similar with wires asking $125.

Very cool. The way the wires meet at the bull, double, and treble is neater that most wired bristle boards today.

Nice, thats a good find then. Your not going to sell though are you? Be a shame since its got the wires. It would be interesting to know if Deco did produce some with wires or if its a previous owners mod.

Of all the Deco boards I have this is the only one I have seen with the wires added. The dividers are painted on in the stencil with this design. The Base Wood boards that they made have the wires imbedded into the wood. This board was made of plywood so it could have been an experiment. The white color is unusual as well. They normally are painted yellow.

much more of a talking point to have hanging than a water colour or some other view painting, that's really cool.
Good find
