Senegal  (Africa)

Senegal or Gambia. My best estimate based on similar sets offered at e.g. Catawiki. I think that I do have the associated board, but in the pictures another board (from Nigeria) has been used.

Here is a picture of that associated board.

On the Ghana (Africa) page are sets with similar woodwork and black colouring, but with other motives.
