    This is a cut out Vintage Metal Chinese Checkerboard Star with six points and seven colors (a center red section surrounded by gray, green, yellow, white, orange, and blue points).  The metal has been impressed with 0.25" in diameter black cups (for holding the round glass markers), which are linked by a series of black lines.  It measures 12" by 12"x 0.125".  The star was probably made in the 1960s in Hong Kong for Ohio Art and, originally, would have been part of a larger round board with dragon details.  This Vintage Metal Chinese Checkerboard Star is in Very Good condition.  It does have slight wear to the paint and some spots of surface rust on back.  Ideal for use in assemblage or other art project.
